Flash freeze warning issued for Ottawa area

The temperature is expected to hold around 13 degrees in Charlottetown before starting its descent Saturday morning.

But cold air isn't the only thing coming down Friday.

Freezing rain will move east across the region before reaching London between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., the national weather agency said.

Rain will also change over to snow on Friday, although the heaviest precipitation is expected to pass south of our coverage area. A general rainfall of 10 to 20 millimetres appears likely, although some areas may see higher amounts.

The truck is making its first appearance back on U.S. soil since 2011 and one that is well received by a large faithful following. Midsize truck fans: Ford will reveal the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit .

As much as 60 mm could fall in some areas.

"With the much colder air moving in on Friday, icy conditions on roads and sidewalks are likely due to the freezing of residual water from either melted snow or rain", added the statement. "Later in the day, at least some freezing rain is possible over central and eastern parts of the Island". Temperatures are expected to fall rapidly this afternoon, meaning that puddles, slush, and any falling precipitation will freeze as the temperature drops.

It's the combination of all that daytime rain followed by freezing rain, freezing drizzle and ice pellets late in the day and the flash freeze by evening that has Environment Canada warning drivers and pedestrians to exercise caution.

A freezing rain warning has been issued for Prince County.
