Environment Canada has issued several freezing rain warnings Wednesday.
At 4:06 AM, the weather office says the freezing rain warnings are in effect for:
- Assiniboia, Gravelbourg, Coronach, Estevan, Weyburn, Radville, Milestone, Moose Jaw, Pense, Central Butte and Craik areas.
A warm front moving through southern Saskatchewan is bringing with it a mix of snow and freezing rain. Freezing rain is likely to occur in the Estevan region west of Highway 35 as well as in parts of the Assiniboia region. This precipitation will move out of the area shortly after sunrise.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
Wednesday’s forecast in Regina is also expected to be tricky.
Flurries and ice pellets will be a concern for motorists and pedestrians.
This weather system moving through should be short-lived however as the temperature for Thursday is expected to reach 9C.
