  • Potential for freezing rain Thursday, ice storm this weekend

Environment Canada has issued sweeping freezing rain warnings for the whole of Southwestern Ontario Saturday morning - from Windsor, Chatham-Kent and Sarnia to Huron-Perth and Oxford counties.

Snow and ice pellets are expected to start tomorrow night (Friday) in SD&G and continue until Saturday night with "significant accumulations possible", the agency said.

Freezing rain will resume again on Sunday, and then change to heavy rain with the potential for localized flooding.

National Weather Service map shows area of ice storm warning in Western New York, with a winter weather advisory for the Southern Tier and most of New York State and a winter storm warning for the area around Watertown. "Some ice pellets may be mixed in at times", an Environment Canada freezing rain warning read, noting there could be a lull in the precipitation Saturday evening.

Toronto's Pearson Airport says travellers should check their flight status online before heading out, because the weather could lead to cancellations. Freezing rain and sleet will gradually develop this afternoon into tonight.

Toronto is expected to only receive 15 millimetres of freezing rain, while Kimbell said areas like Hamilton could receive between 20 and 30 millimetres by Sunday.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Barry, Calhoun, Jackson and Washtenaw Counties where up to two tenths of an inch of ice will be possible by Sunday morning.

Rain will taper off on April 16.

Hydro One said it has crews ready to respond to outages 24/7, and additional resources are on standby this weekend. Drivers should expect ice-covered surfaces and be on the lookout for downed tree limbs and power lines.
