Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Prince County for Friday. 

A low pressure system approaching from southern Ontario will bring a prolonged period of ice pellets and freezing rain to Prince county beginning Friday morning. The icy conditions will end late in the day as temperatures climb above zero.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

There is a special weather statement for Kings and Queens County.

The same low pressure system  will bring ice pellets and freezing rain to Kings County and Queens County but they will end earlier than in Prince County  as temperatures climb above zero by early afternoon.

There is some uncertainty about the duration and intensity of the freezing rain at this time. Warnings may be issued if conditions are expected to worsen.

To stay on top of the situation please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
