Areas of freezing drizzle are expected or occuring.

An area of freezing drizzle has developed in southern Alberta this morning, with a heavier band located from just northwest of Airdrie south through Calgary and on to Claresholm. The freezing drizzle is expected to taper off this evening.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Freezing drizzle can produce thin, hard to detect layers of ice. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Weather Advisories for Freezing Drizzle are issued when drizzle falling in sub zero temperatures is expected to freeze on contact, and over time create icy surfaces.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ABStorm.
