Update: The Freezing Rain warning has ended.
Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for this morning.
See the warning below:
- Brantford – County of Brant
- Woodstock – Tillsonburg – Oxford County
A few hours of freezing rain likely this morning.
Precipitation associated with a developing low pressure system has spread into southwestern Ontario. There is a threat of patchy freezing rain this morning as temperatures will be near the freezing mark. Any freezing rain is expected to change to snow by this afternoon.
Current information suggests that the most likely locations to receive a few hours of freezing rain include London, Woodstock, Brantford, and Hamilton.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
