Freezing rain and/or snow expected across parts of Ontario

Share

Simcoe County might be in the clear. However, the rest of our region could be hit with ice rain and snow later today.

Environment Canada has posted a ffreezing rain warning for several counties, including:

  • Grey and Bruce,
  • Orangeville - Grand Valley - Southern Dufferin County
  • Shelburne - Mansfield - Northern Dufferin County
  • Dufferin and Innisfil,
  • Owen Sound, the Blue Mountains and Northern Grey County
  • Hanover, Dundalk and southern Grey County

In its warning, the national weather agency said to expect a brief period of freezing rain this afternoon.

The hazard is two to four centimetres of ice build-up, especially over higher terrain.

The advisory states, "Although freezing rain is expected to be brief and limited during the afternoon, an earlier onset could lead to great ice build-up."

Additionally, surfaces, including highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots, may become slippery, and power outages could occur.

Environment Canada has placed the rest of central and northern Ontario under a Weather Statement, indicating there could be snowfall amounts of four to eight centimetres this evening into Wednesday.

However, it also notes snow accumulations could be limited due to warm surface temperatures and could switch to rain during the overnight hours.
