The messy weather is all connected to a low-pressure system that moved up from the United States. The layer brought icy rain to areas north of Montreal Thursday night. Mirabel saw freezing rain from kl. 18 Thursday evening to kl. 8 Friday morning.

Light snow is expected to subside in Montreal on Friday night, and then colder air will move in.

Montreal will see the wind pick up Friday night to Saturday morning with gusts of up to 50 mph. The low temperatures in Montreal will drop to almost seasonal -4 degrees Celsius, but the wind will make it feel more like -12. The gust is expected to continue all day Saturday.

Colder air will stay throughout the next week with temperatures staying below average and below freezing.
