Wind warning and flash freeze warning issued for Montreal

“Montrealers should brace for strong winds, snow and a flash freeze.”

Environment Canada has issued two weather warnings for Montreal, a wind warning and a flash freeze warning, amid this week’s “Fool’s Spring.” High westerly winds of up to 90 km per hour are expected on Wednesday evening as temperatures drop rapidly from a high of 13 degrees Celcius in the afternoon to a low of -12 C overnight.

“Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.”

Flash freeze warnings are issued when the forecast calls for a rapid drop in temperature that can cause accumulated rain water or melted snow on streets and sidewalks to freeze quickly and pose a hazard to drivers and pedestrians.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.”

Please be careful out there.
