Prolonged freezing rain possible in parts of New Brunswick


A mixture of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain is on the way for New Brunswick beginning tonight and continuing Monday and Tuesday. 

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning there may be prolonged freezing rain as temperatures fall on Monday. 

The national weather service says a low pressure system will approach slowly from the south tonight and Monday then linger around the region into Tuesday.

The precipitation will begin over the southernmost portions of the province early Monday morning.

“However, as temperatures fall later in the day and the precipitation continues to push northward, there is potential for a prolonged area of freezing rain to form Monday evening and persist into Tuesday morning,” the statement said.

The northern and eastern portions of the province are most at risk for freezing rain, but there is still a chance it could affect western and southern portions of the province as well.
