Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions as untreated surfaces may become icy and slippery.
Environment Canada meteorologists continue to monitor the evolution of this system closely and will update warnings as required.
The change over to rain has occurred over Sault Ste. Marie and vicinity. As a result the freezing rain warning has ended.
