Although the warm weather comes as a relief for many Lakelanders, there are some downsides too.
Due to the warm weather, Lac La Biche County staff are unable to repair the damage to ice at outdoor skating rinks. Please use caution on the ice in the meantime – there may be exposed asphalt.
Forecasts predict that temperatures will once again drop on Monday. Assuming the weather cooperates, staff will be out again on Monday flooding rinks throughout the County.
Although announced in Lac La Biche, this advice probably applies just as well to other regions that have seen warm weather as well. Be safe out there.
