Environment Canada issued a flash freeze warning Monday morning saying the temperature is forecast to fall rapidly and turn ponding water and slush into ice.

"An Arctic cold front will cross the central interior of B.C. later today. Scattered showers and mild temperatures today will change to showers or flurries as the front arrives. Rapidly falling temperatures following the front could result in icy and slippery surfaces," Environment Canada said.

The temperature was 3 C when the warning was issued and is forecast to drop to -7 C by this afternoon, according to the Environment Canada website.

It will make for treacherous driving and walking as roads, walkways and parking become icy and slippery. "Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas," Environment Canada added.

Also on Monday, snowfall warnings were issued for the Pine Pass and Highway 16 from Tete Jaune Cache to the Alberta border.
