A freezing rain warning has been issued for the Pine Pass as strong southerly winds will bring warm air into the region.  The warning says Prince George, Vanderhoof, the Pine Pass, Fort St. James and MacKenzie could see the freezing rain.

Areas of freezing rain tonight.

Precipitation falling through a relatively warm layer of air aloft and into sub-zero air near the surface is leading to patchy freezing rain through the area tonight.

Southerly winds are pushing in warmer air from the south, and places such as Prince George and Vanderhoof have risen above freezing. Precipitation falling to the north along Highway 97, north of Prince George to Mackenzie as well as Communities near Fort St. James is likely falling as freezing rain.

The warm air will push further north through the night and the freezing rain will transition to rain showers.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
