Freezing rain warning in effect for:
- Elliot Lake – Ranger Lake
Ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring.
A band of freezing rain and ice pellets will develop as temperatures drop to below the zero degree mark in the wake of a sharp arctic cold front tonight.
This cold front was located on a line extending from near St. Joseph Island to Temagami late this evening, and will push south across the Algoma – Nickel Belt and Nipissing areas into Central Ontario overnight.
The freezing rain will reach the Elliot Lake to Sudbury areas overnight, then North Bay early Friday morning. Freezing rain will likely last 2 to 4 hours before changing over to ice pellets and a short period of snow.
Untreated surfaces will become icy and slippery. Travel plans should be adjusted accordingly.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
