Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for central and eastern Prince Edward Island.

An area of mixed precipitation is forecast to move into the region tonight and then change to freezing rain overnight as temperatures fall below zero.

Over northern Nova Scotia and central/eastern Prince Edward Island the freezing rain will begin near midnight and spread to Cape Breton overnight. The freezing rain will change to rain Monday morning as temperatures rise above zero degrees.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. For information on emergency plans and kits go to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/



Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.



Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Stay up to date with Weatheradio or your local media.

 Email reports of severe weather to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #PEStorm.
