Environment Canada issued a freezing rain warning for Prince County Wednesday afternoon as special weather alerts for the rest of the province were ended.

The weather agency warns snow will change to freezing rain then rain over northern sections of Prince County Wednesday night.

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery," the alert reads.

"Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions."

Environment Canada had warned snow would hit the Island around noon before changing to rain late in the afternoon.

The weather agency warned freezing rain was likely.

The rain was expected to continue into the evening.

Environment Canada said as much as 10 millimetres of rain could fall on Thursday.
