Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for the Coquihalla, from Hope to Merritt.

"Warm air aloft pushes inland this afternoon and freezing rain is expected for portions of the Coquihalla and the Hope Princeton Highways, near Hope. Higher elevations of these routes will likely see a transition to rain showers by this evening," Environment Canada reported.

Freezing rain could persist into Sunday.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous.
