Freezing Rain WarningIssued at 14:38 Monday 22 January 2018
Significant freezing rain is expected this afternoon into the overnight hours.
Several centimetres of snow and ice pellets are likely before the precipitation changes to freezing rain, possibly heavy, this afternoon. Roads will likely become slippery due to snow or an ice layer due to freezing rain.
Freezing rain will likely change to rain overnight as temperatures rise above the freezing mark. This weather system may cause power outages and road closures.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
