Alerts in Effect
Freezing Rain WarningIssued at 05:17 Monday 09 December 2019
Freezing rain this afternoon and evening.
Precipitation associated with an approaching Colorado Low will move into northeastern Ontario beginning later this morning. Although there will be a patchy freezing drizzle in the morning, the more significant threat of freezing rain will be in the afternoon and early evening. Several hours of freezing rain are likely in some areas.
Several millimetres of ice accretion are possible with some areas likely receiving several centimetres of snow in addition to the freezing rain.
Freezing rain will change to all snow towards midnight as much colder air arrives in from the north in the wake of the low.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break.
