Environment Canada is expecting up to 10 millimeters of freezing rain to fall during the day Sunday.
According to Hydro Quebec, over 200 homes are without power in the Monteregie. No outages have been reported in the Montreal area so far.
Freezing rain slickly coated roads and sidewalks across southwestern Quebec overnight, and Environment Canada warns this downpour is due to continue Sunday morning.
As temperatures rise above zero later this afternoon, the freezing rain is expected to taper off into rain, which will continue throughout the week.
Around 8 p.m. Saturday, a freight truck skidded on black ice while driving Route 117, near Lac-Pythonga, in the Outaouais.
The diversion created a pileup on the road – a bus, and then multiple vehicles collided with the truck.
Quebec provincial police say a 35-year-old woman has died after a pileup on Highway 117 near Lake Pythonga in the Outaouais, about 350 kilometres northwest of Montreal.
"People did not adapt to the slippery road conditions," said Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Sgt. Claude Denis.
One person in another vehicle was transported to hospital in Montreal with serious injuries, but police don't believe that person's life is in danger.
It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.
