Warning: Severe Freezing Rain Alert In Effect For Montreal

Environment Canada has issued a High Alert for the Montreal area.

There is a 90% chance of seeing freezing rain beginning on Saturday, followed by ice pellets.

And if that wasn't bad enough, there are going to be flurries before the rain begins and another 5-10 cm of snow after the rain and ice pellets have covered the city.

The combination of the two is sure to cause chaos of nightmarish proportions on the roads, so do yourself a favor and plan ahead.
