Parts of Saskatchewan under a freezing rain warning

Freezing rain warnings are in place Tuesday morning for a swath of Saskatchewan.

Environment Canada says an area of freezing rain is moving quickly eastward from southwestern regions of the province into south-central regions.

The warned areas stretch from Saskatoon south to Rockglen and include Regina, Weyburn and Estevan.

Freezing rain is expected to last for up to two hours before ending, Environment Canada said.

Officials said extra care should be taken when heading out on highways or walkways as surfaces may become icy and slippery.
