Could get slippery out there Freezing Rain Warning for Saturday night


Winter is having a hard time leaving us this year. As the snow slowly melts away and we start to see signs of Spring, old man Winter wants to give us more wintery weather ahead.

Freezing rain warning in effect for:

Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected.

Freezing rain will develop through the overnight hours and persist into Sunday. Temperatures will rise through the day resulting in freezing rain changing to rain by Sunday afternoon.

The freezing rain is expected to be heavy at times which could result in significant ice accretion, particularly Sunday morning.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Utility outages may occur.
