Sunday, May 11, 2014, 4:34 PM -
Roads across St. John's are becoming slippery this afternoon as a freezing rain warning is in effect for the city and the Avalon Peninsula north region.
Environment Canada says an extended period of freezing rain is expected to continue throughout the evening, before switching to flurries after midnight.
Overall, 5 to 10 mm of rainfall is expected for St. John's. Although that's not a lot of rain in terms of accumulation, it will be enough to create ice build-up and icy surfaces as temperatures drop below zero.

"The good news for St. John's is that this system will completely push out of the province by Monday morning, although temperatures will be below-seasonal until mid-week," says Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm.
