Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Saskatoon.  Freezing rain is expected to end later this evening and turn into snow combined with heavy winds toward the morning. 

Freezing rain and blowing are anticipated to cause slippery conditions and visibility issues on Saskatoon streets overnight and into Friday morning. Drivers and pedestrians are urged to use caution on the streets and sidewalks. Morning commuters may want to leave early.

18 sanders will be spreading de-icing materials on Circle Drive, freeways, high traffic streets, bridge decks and intersections overnight.  Please watch for their blue and amber flashing lights and leave room for road equipment to do their work.
