Traffic gets tricky as snow, ice pellets, freezing rain hit capital region Saturday

Our friends at Environment Canada have put off spring yet again with a freezing rain warning in effect for at least Saturday.

This covers both the Ottawa North (Kanata to Orléans) and Ottawa South (Richmond to Metcalfe) weather regions.

In short, freezing rain is expected today.

In more detail, it should start snowing early Saturday morning with a few centimetres of accumulation possible. Winds will be out of the east.

Snow had changed to ice pellets by the noon hour, and it was expected to mix with or change to freezing rain.
