Freezing Rain Warning issued for the City of Kawartha Lakes

February 24, 2016 - Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The freezing rain is expected to change over to rain by evening as temperatures rise above the zero degree mark. A significant rainfall is possible tonight, and rainfall warnings may be issued later today if required.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Drivers are instructed to slow down in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. 

In addition to the statement from Environment Canada, the City of Kawartha Lakes would like to assure its residents that all winter control resources are ready to respond to the storm as it develops. 

Forecasts are predicting snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain in the next 24 hours. Due to these forecasted conditions, travel may become challenging and the City of Kawartha Lakes advises that, if possible, travel should be avoided. Parking on City streets and sidewalks should also be avoided if possible so as to not impede winter maintenance activities.
