Freezing Rain Warning

Post by retired2 on Tue Mar 03, 2015 11:07 am

Freezing Rain Warning
Issued at 4:41 a.m. EST Tuesday 3 March 2015
Summary

A low pressure system developing over the American Plains will track towards southern Ontario today, bringing a wintery mix of precipitation to the region. Snow accompanied by some ice pellets is expected to develop early this morning over extreme Southwestern Ontario and reach the Golden Horseshoe near midday. It is forecast to transition to freezing rain near midday in the southwest and this afternoon in the Hamilton and Niagara corridor. The freezing rain will persist for a few hours before tapering to some light rain or drizzle as temperatures nudge above the freezing mark early this evening.
Details

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
