The last weekend of March is proving to be a slippery for those travelling in southern Alberta Sunday. 

Easterly up slope flow out of an Arctic high is giving patchy freezing drizzle to parts of southern Alberta, including Medicine Hat, Letherbridge and Cardston.

Environment Canada has issued a freezing drizzle warning for the region. 

There have been some reports already that the drizzle is resulting in icy surfaces. Residents are being warned to drive with caution throughout the day. 

The freezing drizzle is expected to continue through the evening before dissipating through the overnight.
