Rain is expected to start Monday evening and as temperatures cool overnight, Environment Canada says there’s a strong possibility that rain could turn into freezing rain by Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are supposed to heat up again and turn the freezing rain back to rain by late Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada is warning those in the area to take extra care when travelling, since road surfaces will likely be slippery overnight.
