FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for the B.C. Peace Region.

According to meteorologists, A Pacific frontal system will bring warm moist air to parts of northern BC today, extending from Terrace to the Peace. Periods of freezing rain are expected today as warm air aloft overrides the cold air near the surface. The front will push further north this evening and the risk of freezing rain will diminish over the region.

A freezing rain warning has also been issued for northwestern Alberta, including areas around Peace River and Grande Prairie.
