Areas of freezing drizzle are expected or occuring.

Freezing drizzle is occurring across most of southern Manitoba including the City of Winnipeg, resulting in icy conditions on both roads and sidewalks. Take extra care while walking or driving. The freezing drizzle should end or change over to flurries this afternoon.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Freezing drizzle can produce thin, hard to detect layers of ice. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Weather Advisories for Freezing Drizzle are issued when drizzle falling in sub zero temperatures is expected to freeze on contact, and over time create icy surfaces.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm.
