Who needs spring anyway? Freezing rain record set for St. John's

People in the St. John's area won't have a hard time believing it, but a freezing rain record was set over the weekend.

Rodney Barney, a meteorologist with the Environment Canada weather office in Gander, said Monday St. John's saw 60 consecutive hours of freezing rain or freezing drizzle.

That freezing rain fell from April 20 straight through to the 23rd.

It made for slippery road conditions early Monday morning, causing some school delays, but temperatures are expected to reach 10 C later in the day, melting the snow that fell late Sunday.
