Freezing rain, snow and 'much colder' temperatures coming: Environment Canada

Rain to pelt London region as massive snowfall ends, Environment Canada says

The below-freezing temperatures are expected to arrive in the GTA after noon on Friday.

Freezing drizzle was reported across a large portion of northeastern Ontario early this evening. However, in some areas, especially in valleys, the freezing drizzle may last into overnight.

The national weather agency is urging drivers to be cautious on the roads and has issued a special weather statement for several parts of Southwestern Ontario including Norfolk, Haldimand and Brant counties. Mild and rainy conditions are then expected for the remainder of the night into Thursday morning. Visibility may occasionally be reduced to near zero.

The rain is expected to be patchy and light for much of Thursday, but may become more widespread tonight and into Friday. Average rainfall amounts are likely to be below the winter rainfall warning criteria of 25 millimetres in 24 hours. Environment Canada will monitor this situation closely. "There may also be a brief period of freezing rain during the changeover from rain to snow".

"Ponding water, slush, and any falling precipitation will freeze as the temperature drops", Environment Canada said on its site.

Rain will begin on Friday night and continue into Saturday. However, locally slippery conditions will be possible on untreated surfaces.
