A freezing rain warning remains in place for Kings County, but Environment Canada removed the warning that was in place for the rest of P.E.I. on Saturday.

"Significant ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring," the weather service said.

"Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and extremely hazardous. Extended and widespread utility outages are possible."

The freezing rain in Kings County is expected to end Sunday morning.

The rest of the Island can expect a mix of flurries, ice pellets and rain overnight Saturday into Sunday morning.
