Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls

Risk of freezing rain or freezing drizzle this afternoon and evening.

There is a risk of freezing rain or freezing drizzle as an area of precipitation moves into the area this afternoon and evening.

Current indications suggest that the area most likely to see freezing rain appears to be a swath of Northeastern Ontario from Chapleau to Temagami and Kirkland Lake beginning later this afternoon. This swath is forecast to push north towards Timmins this evening. It is possible that any freezing rain that does occur could take several hours to change over to rain. However, it appears that amounts will not be overly significant as the freezing rain will be rather light in nature.

Environment Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor this situation closely and issue a freezing rain warning if required.

Travel may become difficult at times due to slippery roads and walkways. Motorists should consider allowing extra time to reach their destination.
