The icy weather conditions could affect residents’ morning commute, according to Environment Canada.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become icy and slippery,” the weather agency warns.

“Freezing drizzle can produce thin, hard-to-detect layers of ice. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance.”
