More freezing rain is expected for New Brunswick Sunday into Monday.

Environment Canada has issued freezing rain warnings for all of New Brunswick.

Freezing rain will start by Sunday evening for most of the province and by Monday morning or afternoon for the north.

CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon said a weather system stalled to the south of the Maritimes is bringing the freezing rain and ice pellets into the province from south to north.

The freezing rain will continue into Monday for southern regions, but change over to showers in the morning, as warmer air is expected to move into southern areas of the province, said Snoddon.

He said there is still some disagreement on the timing for the transition from freezing rain to rain for central and northeastern areas.

Snoddon said the ice will build up on surfaces including roads, walkways, trees and power lines, causing the possibility of power outages.

Areas along the Fundy coast and southeastern New Brunswick also have rainfall warnings in effect, with 20 to 30 millimetres expected from near midnight Sunday until Monday evening.
