Mother Nature has an icy surprise in store for the Coquihalla and Okanagan Connector highways today.

According to Environment Canada, freezing rain or ice pellets will develop over the central Interior this afternoon and spread south over the South Thompson and south Interior highways.

"Freezing rain and ice pellets are forecast to change to rain or showers Tuesday afternoon as the warm air reaches the surface and brings the temperature above zero," a special weather statement reads.

The wintry mix of weather is the result of Arctic air entrenched in the Interior meeting a Pacific warm front, Environment Canada said.

Freezing rain and ice may spread north to the Peace River area tonight.
