Environment Canada reports that there is the potential of freezing rain Friday and Saturday.

“Bands of moisture will continue to move across the Interior today through Saturday. A layer of warm air will also sweep across the coastal mountain tops and over the interior valleys giving the likelihood of above freezing temperatures aloft,” states Environment Camada.

“Freezing rain may develop wherever sub-freezing air near the surface persists. Rain falling into sub-freezing air will freeze on contact, creating hazardous icy travelling conditions”
