Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for London and surrounding areas as a system moves in Tuesday night.

Tuesday night is expected to have heavy rainfall significant snow accumulation is possible above 6,000 feet.

Environment Canada meteorologist Ryan Rozinski says an unusual temperature change will bring a high of zero later in the afternoon and evening, turning freezing rain to straight rain. It will be mostly cloudy and dry during the day, but around sunset, a mix of sleet and freezing rain will develop.

Drivers in the Kansas City area should be careful Tuesday, transportation officials warned, because road crews will not be able to pretreat roads in advance of anticipated freezing rain. Temperatures are expected to fall well below freezing tonight, with overnight lows in the teens.

The weather service strongly discouraged travel. As mentioned above surface temperatures will be key on precipitation type on Wednesday whether it's freezing rain likely in the morning or just rain likely by the afternoon. Snapped power lines and falling tree branches are also possible. Winds will increase at that time and lake effect snow will begin.

Forecasters said Flagstaff temperatures would drop to 28 degrees on Wednesday with a low of nine degrees into Wednesday night.
