You’ve no doubt heard someone say the last couple days that we’re going to pay for the mild weather.  That could happen tonight.

Environment Canada meteorologist Peter Kimbell says he’s concerned about a cold front barrelling eastward this evening, quickly dropping the temperature below zero.  He’s just not sure if that will happen in the Timmins-Cochrane area.

“We’re being careful and cautious so that’s why we have a freezing rain warning out and we’re talking about rain changing to periods of freezing rain, possibly to snow this evening,” Kimbell reports.

Be careful on the road.  All that water that’s already there, combined with what’s predicted, will make for slippery conditions.

“Particularly this evening and especially over the northern areas: Moonbeam, Smooth Rock Falls, Kapuskasing  for sure.”

South of there—basically along Highway 101 through Timmins – might not drop below freezing.

Kimball adds that even if the thermometer is above zero tomorrow, we’ll definitely plunge back into winter tomorrow night.
