Freezing Rain WarningIssued at 4:49 a.m. CST Friday 21 November 2014
Freezing rain is expected or occurring. A low pressure system tracking across northern Saskatchewan continues to spread a band of freezing rain across parts of the northeastern grainbelt this morning. The freezing rain will persist for several more hours in these areas before changing over to rain showers or flurries later this morning. Meanwhile, this band remained just a few kilometres north of Saskatoon for much of the night and is no longer expected to impact the city. However, freezing rain will continue for areas immediately north of the city for another hour or two. In the Battlefords and Meadow Lake areas, temperatures have risen above the freezing mark and precipitation has already transitioned to rain showers.Details
