Freezing Rain Warning Issued For the Sault and Area


We go from a high of plus 6c Monday and then drop to below freezing tomorrow on Tuesday but in the meantime a Colorado low will spread a mix bag of precipitation over the next 24 hours from rain to freezing rain and then back to snow. Environment Canada has issued a warning for the immediate area as a period of freezing rain  is expected for a several hours Monday.

Freezing rain warning in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Freezing rain is expected on Monday morning and will move from west to east across the regions. Freezing rain amounts across the Sudbury – North Bay corridor may be fairly significant with several millimetres possible. The freezing rain is expected to end by Monday afternoon.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.

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