Environment Canada: Rainy day ahead before potential ice storm this weekend

Snow, ice pellets, freezing rain on tap for Almaguin this weekend Possible 'high impact' storm for weekend in SD&G
Andrew Cummings | 15 April, 2018, 00:27

It's expected to turn into freezing rain late Sunday and potentially into Monday.

A powerful area of low pressure will slowly crawl across the state this weekend. The sloppy weather is expected to continue into Sunday until temperatures rise to above freezing sometime in the afternoon.

Rain associated with this low will switch to freezing rain on Saturday morning, and will likely persist for a number of hours into Saturday evening.

A nasty mix of rain, snow and freezing rain is the weekend forecast and what you get will all depend on where you live. Areas just north of I-96 are most likely to see ice accumulation. Some uncertainty exists as to the time the precipitation switches over to rain on Sunday.

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. The combination of ice accumulation and strong winds may result in power outages because of fallen tree limbs and power lines.

Travel could be hard with ice covered roads and the potential of downed trees, limbs and power lines.

Roads and highways could become quite slippery and flooding is possible.

The agency is warning the public to stay off the roads, as driving conditions are likely to become treacherous with the blast of wintery weather. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.

People can report hydro outages by calling Alectra Utilities at 1-844-797-7920 in Brampton and 905-273-7425 in Mississauga.
