It may be spring, but winter hasn’t had its final say yet.

Environment Canada issued a freezing rain warning for a large swath of southern Quebec, including Montreal.

The public weather agency said that about two to five millimetres of freezing rain are expected “during the transition from a mix of snow and ice pellets to rain overnight Wednesday night.”

Aside from Montreal, the warning is in effect for several other regions. Among them are the Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Laurentians and Quebec City areas.
