KAMLOOPS - A freezing rain warning issued for the South Thompson and the Coquihalla Highway has been ended by Environment Canada.

Environment Canada says freezing rain conditions no longer exist in the South Thompson, and from Merritt to Kamloops on the Coquihalla Highway.

An arctic front that moved through the South Thompson led to a band of freezing rain, which has now transitioned into snow flurries.
