Freezing rain warning issued for North Thompson, Shuswap

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for the Shuswap and North Thompson, in addition to warnings in effect for the Nicola, Similkameen, Fraser Canyon, Okanagan and Arrow Lakes.

“Areas of patchy freezing rain are now spreading over the North and Central Okanagan and over the Arrow Slocan regions as well as the North Thompson. The freezing rain should end through the afternoon and early evening as the nose of warmer air aloft is eroded.”

As a result, surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Ice build up can also cause tree branches to break.

A freezing rain warning is also in effect for Highway 3 and the Coquihalla.
