Fort Chipewyan itself will likely be right on the freezing rain and snow boundary. Areas to the west of the townsite will see the greatest chance of freezing rain.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

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