Environment Canada (EC) has issued a freezing rain warning for the region.

The weather agency says a mix of rain and snow with patchy freezing rain will begin this evening. The precipitation will end early Monday morning.

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

"Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions," EC said in a release.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

The warning includes Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Edmonton, Gibbons, Bon Accord, Redwater, Bruderheim and Lamont.
