Special Weather Statement for Wednesday Feb 19 2019

There is a band of weather heading toward Southern Ontario that is expected to bring scattered flurries with it but could also bring less fortunate weather in the form of Freezing Rain in the afternoon or evening. Currently there is no certainty as to the type or amount of precipitation that can be expected and so Environment Canada has issued another Special Weather Statement which reads as follows;

 

Freezing rain threatening Wednesday.

Freezing rain is expected to affect Southwestern Ontario Wednesday as another large low pressure system brewing over the Southern Plains States moves towards the Great Lakes.

Most areas will get a brief period of snow, followed by a quick transition to freezing rain Wednesday afternoon. Freezing rain or freezing drizzle will change to occasional rain or drizzle later Wednesday afternoon over extreme Southwestern Ontario, and Wednesday night elsewhere as temperatures edge above the zero degree mark.

Untreated surfaces may become icy and slippery. Travel may be affected.

 

As with all previous systems that were expected to bring Freezing Rain we will continue to monitor this and pass on any updated information such as any upgrades to watches or warnings.
