There is a flash freeze warning in effect for the entire Ottawa Valley. Temperatures are expected to fall rapidly this afternoon, meaning that puddles, slush, and any falling precipitation will freeze as the temperature drops. Environment Canada is warning that following the passage of a cold front this afternoon, rain will change to snow and there will be a hard freeze as temperatures plummet. There may also be a brief period of freezing rain during the changeover from rain to snow. Highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous so you’re urged to take extra care when walking or driving. The forecast for this afternoon calls for periods of snow (two centimetres) with the risk of freezing rain. Temperature falling to minus 8, followed by two more centimetres of snow tonight and a low of minus 19 with the wind chill reaching minus 27.
