Freezing rain warning issued for Prince George

 

Motorists stop to help another motorist whose car slid into the ditch along Otway Drive this morning. Be careful out there, the roads are treacherous.

Be extra careful on the roads today. Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Prince George.

A Pacific front will bring warm moist air to parts of northern B.C. today extending from Terrace to Peace River region. Periods of freezing rain are expected today as warm air aloft overrides the cold air near the surface. Combined with yesterday’s snowfall, the freezing rain will make roads treacherous.

The front will push further north this evening and the risk of freezing rain will diminish over the region.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
