A low pressure system moving through Saskatchewan is supporting an area of freezing rain extends from the international border in far southeastern Saskatchewan to the centre of the province, then curls around the low and drops southwards along the rear flank of the low.
The freezing rain over central Saskatchewan and along back side of the low will come to an end midday as the low begins moving to the southeast. The freezing rain over the southeastern corner of the province will become more organized through the morning hours and move into southwestern Manitoba.
The freezing rain in Manitoba will last through much of the afternoon, then come to an end this evening. It will not extend too far into the province, remaining in the regions adjacent to the Saskatchewan border.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
