TRURO - The freezing rain warning continues for all parts of Colchester County.

This one-eyed, two-armed creature is just one of two dyed bright colours just past the bandshell at Victoria Park in Truro.

Environment Canada is still calling for an extended period of freezing rain as a trough of low pressure just south of the province moves northward on Monday.

The precipitation, which includes freezing drizzles, freezing rain and ice pellets, will change to rain as temperatures climb to above zero, however there is a possibility that Northern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton could see temperatures remain below freezing for Monday until Monday night.

In the province, only a small number of residents in Amherst and along the North Shore are without power, with an estimated restoration time set for 7:15 a.m.

Highway 102 is bare with wet conditions between Shubenacadie and the 104 interchange, as is Highway 289 between Middle Stewiacke and Brookfield. Highway 2 between Shubenacadie and Truro is also bare with wet patches.

Other roads in the county remain partly covered. Motorists are still advised to drive with caution.
