If you are headed to Winnipeg from Thunder Bay, Kenora, Dryden or Ignace, your weekend travel plans might be slowed down by weather.

There is a Freezing Drizzle Advisory in effect for:

Areas of freezing drizzle are expected or occurring.

Freezing drizzle is falling in much of the Red River Valley including the city of Winnipeg this evening. Freezing drizzle is also likely in southeastern Manitoba including the Whiteshell area. Untreated surfaces are likely to become slippery over time. Visibility while driving may also be affected as freezing drizzle causes icing on automobile windshields. Widespread fog may also result in poor visibility at times.

The freezing drizzle will gradually change to flurries overnight as a cold front moves through the region.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

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