Freezing rain warning in effect for Ottawa-Gatineau area
Slippery conditions could make Monday morning commute a slippery one
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, take note: Monday morning's commute could be a slippery one.
Environment Canada has issued freezing rain warnings for Ottawa, Gatineau and other regions around the Ontario-Quebec border.
The freezing rain in Ottawa should begin at around 8 a.m. and last for between one and three hours, according to the weather agency.
One week ago, I was standing in the middle of this creek (on thick ice), taking photos. 7.6°C Now. Slow am commute! <a href="https://t.co/uAIzyi4xB7">pic.twitter.com/uAIzyi4xB7</a>—@BlacksWeather
The temperature will eventually warm up and the freezing rain will change to normal rain, Environment Canada said.
The afternoon commute should be much easier, at least. Any icy roads should melt by late Monday morning.
