Freezing rain warnings end in Ottawa-Gatineau

Thursday’s freezing rain warnings have ended in parts of eastern Ontario and Gatineau.

The agency issued a freezing rain warning around 6:45 am and said a brief spell of freezing rain was expected early Thursday morning for Ottawa-Gatineau, Prescott-Russell and the Cornwall area.

It ended for the areas of Ottawa and Cornwall around 10:30 am and elsewhere around 11:30 am

All warnings were expected to end when that icy rain turns to rain by noon. The highest point on Thursday is 5 C in Ottawa.

Environment Canada calls for a rainy, foggy night in Ottawa that must not go below freezing. On Friday, that temperature should drop and the rain should turn into about five centimeters of snow.

A special weather report is in effect for communities north of Gatineau, as up to 10 inches of snow could fall on Friday. Forecasters are not yet sure if it will be more rain than snow.
