Special Weather Statement

Issued at 11:10 Sunday 21 January 2018

Significant freezing rain likely developing Monday.

A Colorado low is forecast to cross the lower Great Lakes for the start of the work week. Some inconsequential drizzle or patchy freezing drizzle may be present during the Monday morning commute.

However, more significant freezing rain is likely to develop during the day Monday. Increasing easterly winds are expected to pump in slightly colder air, causing temperatures to dip to near or just below the freezing mark. As a result, incoming precipitation from the low is expected to fall primarily as freezing rain, particularly Monday afternoon and evening. Several millimetres of ice accumulation are possible before it changes to rain in the overnight hours. The Monday evening commute will likely be impacted by icy roads. Localized power outages are also possible by Monday night.

Freezing rain warnings will likely be issued as the event approaches.
