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

Parts of Southern Ontario could be hit with an ice storm this weekend according to Environment Canada

"A fast-moving low pressure system will cross southern Ontario Thursday bringing an area of rain with it".

As well, a rainfall warning and freezing rain alert were issued for Chatham-Kent and Rondeau Park by Environment Canada.

Dufferin County, parts of Simcoe, Peel and Wellington County were hit hard April 4th when freezing rain coated everything, knocking out power to thousands. Snow and ice pellets will likely affect portions of central and eastern Ontario Friday night into Saturday night with significant accumulations possible.

Rain will taper off on April 16.

Rain is expected to change to snow and ice pellets this morning, with brief freezing rain possible during the changeover. Some uncertainty exists as to the time the precipitation switches over to rain on Sunday.




"The combination of excessive ice accumulations and strong winds will likely result in widespread power outages due to fallen trees and power lines", the freezing rain warning read.

Ice will likely accumulate and glaze roadways, creating tricky winter driving conditions if untreated. There is a flood watch in effect from late Sunday night through Tuesday afternoon for Monroe and several other counties.

A winter weather advisory, the weather service said, "means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties". Coupled with wind gusts up to 80 kilometres per hour, it's enough to knock out power and down trees, Environment Canada said.

GTA residents are sharing their photos and videos from across the region as the storm passes through their neighbourhoods.
