Road conditions could be messy again tomorrow morning with risk of freezing rain overnight


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Yellowhead Road & Bridge is warning that the roads could once again be very slick tomorrow morning.

Environment Canada is saying that there is another chance of freezing rain tonight with a 30% chance of flurries also mixed in the forecast with a low of -3.

YRB expects accumulations to be minimal but temperatures could cause some havoc on the roads.

“Although roads have been sanded and/or salted, overnight conditions could again cause slippery roads in the morning. Our crews will be working throughout the night and tomorrow morning to ensure all major routes are sanded/salted. However, YRB reminds everyone to please use extreme caution when travelling tomorrow morning.”
