Hamilton could be in for a perfectly chilling winter weather event in the next 24 hours or so.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the City of Hamilton as there is a risk of freezing rain on Wednesday (March 30).

The weather agency warns that roads, parking lots and walkways may become slippery in the event and if residents are out in about they are urged to exercise extra caution.

“A mix of freezing rain and ice pellets will be possible Wednesday morning before changing to rain Wednesday afternoon,” the Environment Canada statement said.

“At this time, there remains considerable uncertainty regarding the timing and amount of freezing rain.”
