Light snow could slow Wednesday's morning commute in southern Ontario
Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 7:16 PM -
After record breaking cold temperatures, snow squalls and blizzards, much of southern Ontario saw temperatures climb well above the freezing mark over the weekend.
Heavy rain also accompanied the milder conditions, increasing the flood threat and water backup on snow and ice covered drainage systems.

The warmer temperatures continued on Monday with some places seeing near double-digit highs.
That's well above the normal temperature of -2°C for this time of year.
"Above seasonal temperatures continued on Tuesday. The next clipper approaches southern Ontario Tuesday evening and the GTA overnight," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter. "Between 2 and 5 cm are forecast in the GTA, with 5-10 cm possible in the Bruce Peninsula and eastern Georgian Bay through the Nickel Belt."
That could result in a slick and slower commute Wednesday and drivers are urged to leave some extra time.
