Driving, walking just being outside could be a little tricky today as conditions go from snow to freezing rain then rain. Due to adverse road conditions all busing is cancelled in Sault Ste. Marie, Elliot Lake, Blind River, Espanola, and Massey. Schools in all five communities will remain open.

5:13 AM EST Tuesday 20 February 2018
Freezing rain warning  in effect for:

Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Periods of freezing rain will continue this morning. Freezing rain will change to rain early this afternoon.

A few millimetres of ice accretion on exposed structures and untreated surfaces are possible.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Road closures are possible. Utility outages may occur.

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