Freezing Rain Warning Issued For Kawartha Lakes And Peterborough

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough with precipitation to begin this afternoon.

Officials say there could be 2 to 5 mm of ice build-up due to several hours of freezing rain beginning this afternoon and ending later this evening

For areas closer to Lake Ontario, freezing rain may not be as prolonged as temperatures may rise above the freezing mark sooner.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break
