Alerts for: Edmundston and Madawaska County


4:45 PM AST Tuesday 24 January 2017
Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Edmundston and Madawaska County

Ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring.

An intense low pressure system near the American seaboard will slowly approach New Brunswick tonight.

Freezing rain and ice pellets currently over much of New Brunswick will continue tonight resulting in a significant amount of ice accretion over much of the province. Freezing rain and ice pellets will change over to rain over southern New Brunswick tonight but will persist across the north until Wednesday afternoon. Freezing rain has already changed over to rain for regions along the Fundy Coast.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #NBStorm.
