Weather alert update: Freezing rain and snow expected for Sunday

Environment Canada has issued an update Saturday Feb. 10/2018 to its earlier statement calling for more snow. Freezing rain for Sunday has been added to the weather statement released earlier Saturday.

“Freezing rain expected beginning Sunday morning and ending Sunday afternoon,” the update said.

“Another round of snow will develop overnight. Snow will mix with ice pellets and accumulate 2 to 5 cm Sunday morning before changing to freezing rain,” the update said. “Freezing rain will persist for several hours before changing back to light snow Sunday afternoon. Snow will end Sunday evening.”

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays.”

Motorists are reminded to slow down in slippery conditions and make sure to maintain a safe following distance.
