Threat of freezing rain, ice leads to changes for CNY prom

Snow, ice pellets, freezing rain on tap for Almaguin this weekend

The ice storm is a result of a moist, low-pressure system from the central plains reaching the Great Lakes area, Environment Canada said.

Winter isn't over yet according to the National Weather Service as meteorologists at the Buffalo weather station have issued a Winter Weather Advisory calling for freezing rain Saturday into Sunday. - Freezing rain should fairly quickly to finish near highway 401, but can last for several hours in regions located further North, especially on high ground.

Weather analysts predict the region will see a "lull" in rainfall for most of Saturday evening but the messy weather picks up again by early Sunday morning.

The weather agency says unsafe winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads on the weekend.

The weather agency issued warnings for the GTA and across southern Ontario on Saturday, and it said widespread power outages are possible.

The rain will change to freezing rain in the morning then quickly turn into ice pellets. There is likely to be a lull in precipitation this evening, with patchy freezing drizzle expected. Significant rain may fall late Sunday and Sunday night creating localized flooding. It may exceed that in some locales.

Travel is also expected to be hazardous.

Gusty winds will also develop and combined with some accumulating ice can cause some downed trees and power lines.

Risky winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads Saturday and Sunday, worsened by fallen tree limbs.
