Sarnia-Lambton is once again under a freezing rain warning from Environment Canada.

The weather agency says freezing rain and strong winds are expected Monday afternoon, with ice accretion of 2 to 5mm, and strong easterly wind gusts of up to 70km/h Monday, followed by strong southwest winds gusting up to 70km/h overnight, into Tuesday morning.

“Precipitation is forecast to begin late this morning or early this afternoon as snow or ice pellets before transitioning to freezing rain later this afternoon,” the weather alert noted.

“By late evening the temperatures are forecast to rise above zero and the risk for freezing rain will come to an end.

“In addition to the freezing rain, strong winds gusting up to 70 km/h are also expected today into tonight.”

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur.
