Special Weather Statement Possible Freezing Rain For Tuesday Feb 12

It might be a good idea to avoid making any travel plans for Tuesday as Environment Canada is monitoring a weather system that could cause some problematic conditions over the course of the day. They have made that information known in a Special Weather Statement which reads as follows;

 

 

Several hours of freezing rain Tuesday.

Precipitation will begin as snow overnight. Snow will change briefly to ice pellets, with 2 to 5 cm accumulation, before changing to freezing rain. Freezing rain will continue for several hours before changing to rain Tuesday afternoon. Travel is likely to be affected.

Additionally, strong easterly winds gusting up to 80 km/h are expected Tuesday.

This freezing rain is associated with a Colorado low that will cross Southern Ontario Tuesday and Wednesday.

Freezing rain warnings may be required as this event draws closer.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

 

If this does become upgraded to Freezing Rain Watches or Warnings you can expect to hear more on this website as well as our social media pages and on air.
