Freezing rain warning in effect for:
Elliot Lake – Ranger Lake
Blind River – Thessalon
Espanola – Killarney
Periods of rain will change to freezing rain this afternoon.
Most areas will see another 5 to 15 mm of rain. For areas closer to Lake Superior, 25 to 40 mm of rain has already fallen overnight and a rainfall warning continues in effect.
However, as temperatures fall below the freezing mark this afternoon, the rain will change to freezing rain. The freezing rain may persist well into Tuesday morning.
Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
