Townships prepare for more challenging weather

The Eastern Townships area isn’t done with dangerous hazardous winter conditions and can expect another mixed bag of temperatures and precipitation to hit the region over the coming week.
Following the snowfall warning yesterday, a major system will bring ice pellets and freezing rain throughout the day, according to Environment Canada.
Precipitation is expected to be about 5 mm, with temperatures hovering around zero degrees centigrade.
Increasing temperatures throughout the day will be accompanied by abundant rain, between 10 and 20 millimeters and water will accumulate and increase the risk of aquaplaning.
By tonight, the rain should turn to snow and accumulations will range from two to five centimeters, and will be particularly heavy in mountainous regions. Wind is expected to lower temperatures thereafter, with a maximum of minus ten to minus 15 degrees, not counting the wind chill factor. Sunshine is expected by the weekend.
The region will be struck by a vast depression originating in the southwestern Great Lakes area.
