Warnings

10:31 PM EST Sunday 21 January 2018
Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Bruce Peninsula - Sauble Beach - Tobermory

Freezing rain likely developing Monday.

A Colorado low is forecast to cross the lower Great Lakes for the start of the work week. Over much of the Bruce Peninsula, the precipitation is expected to begin in the morning. A brief period of snow or freezing rain is likely at the onset before changing to rain. Any freezing rain is expected to be fairly brief as temperatures should quickly rise above the freezing mark during the day.

However, over northern portions of the peninsula, the freezing rain may persist for several hours before changing over to rain. Here, the temperature may not rise above the freezing mark until Monday evening.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

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 ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Owen Sound - Blue Mountains - Northern Grey County

Some freezing rain likely on Monday.

A Colorado low is forecast to cross the lower Great Lakes for the start of the work week. A few areas from the Oak Ridges Moraine into the Dundalk Highlands may have patchy freezing drizzle during the night into Monday morning.

An area of more substantial precipitation will move into the region Monday morning and continue for much of the day. The majority of this precipitation is expected to fall in the form of rain since temperatures should be just above the freezing mark. However, temperatures may occasionally dip just below the freezing mark resulting in freezing rain during the day.

At this point, it looks like freezing rain amounts should be fairly light. More significant freezing rain is likely over much of Central and Eastern Ontario where temperatures will be colder.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
