Ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring.

Freezing rain will change to rain by early this afternoon. Freezing rain accretion of 2 to 5 mm is possible on untreated surfaces. Surfaces may continue to be slippery even after a change to rain due to ice remaining on the ground.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Beware of branches or electrical wires that could break under the weight of ice.
