Environment Canada issued a Freezing Rain Warning for the Prince Rupert area in the early morning hours of Friday morning, though the temperatures have since risen, with few concerns found on local roads heading towards the morning transit period.

Still, for those travelling eastbound the Warning is one to be aware of, that as the colder air inland mixes with the approaching weather systems ahead.
