Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the memo spring is here. A special weather statement is in effect for Haliburton and Minden as freezing rain is on the way.

Environment Canada says it will be patchy freezing rain, mixed with snow and ice pellets. It should move out of the area by noon, and then will switch over to rain.

Drivers and pedestrians should be careful as roads and sidewalks that haven’t been salted will be slippery. The my-Haliburton-now newsroom is watching the weather and will continue to keep you updated.
