Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for southeastern Manitoba. 

Freezing rain is expected to fall here in the Southeast Tuesday afternoon. 

As of 2 PM, Environment Canada’s Doppler RADAR indicates a band of freezing rain, which stretches from Portage la Prairie to just north of Morris, that is moving toward the northeast. If freezing rain does fall, it will likely affect the southeast region between 2:30 and 4:00 PM before easing up early this evening. 

In a warning to residents, Environment Canada says surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.  

Motorists are urged to take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas, slow down when conditions are slippery, watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance, and to be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Environment Canada is then calling for light snow throughout the evening that should let up around midnight.
