FREEZING RAIN WARNING ISSUED AHEAD OF POTENTIAL ICE STORM, COULD CAUSE WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES
4/13/2018 11:50:53 AM


Dufferin County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Murphy says prepare for the worse.

   
Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for much of Central Ontario.


A moisture laden low pressure area over the Central Plains States will amble slowly towards the lower Great Lakes this weekend. As the low gets closer, brisk northeasterly winds will pump in cold arctic air, forcing temperatures to fall to near or below the zero degree mark on Saturday.


Rain is going to switch to freezing rain as early as overnight Friday and persist for a number of hours into Saturday evening.


Freezing rain may mix or become ice pellets at times.


The national weather agency says ice build up of 10 to 20 millimetres is likely by Sunday morning. Some areas may get higher amounts.


Power outages are also possible.

   
Untreated roads will cause dangerous driving conditions. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.
