  • 'Major ice storm' may hit parts of Eastern Ontario this weekend

"Closer to the shores of lake Ontario is expected only rain".

As this weather system is still a few days away, Environment Canada said there remains uncertainty with regards to precipitation amounts and which areas will be most affected.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Sarnia-Lambton, London-Middlesex, Elgin County and Oxford County advising of a slow-moving weather system that is expected to a significant risk of freezing rain Saturday afternoon. Precipitation may start as rain, but increasing northeasterly winds will draw colder air from an arctic high pressure system to the north, resulting in a changeover to freezing rain during the day Saturday. "Closer to the lake Ontario shoreline, only rain is expected".

While dark skies and rain are in the forecast for Thursday and Friday, the weather "gets really complicated once we get into the weekend", Etienne Gregoire, warning preparedness meteorologist with Environment Canada, told CBC Toronto.

This has the potential to lead to a major ice storm in some areas, with ice accumulations of over 20 millimetres possible. That combined with gusty northeast winds may result in power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines. You might want to prepare for the worst this weekend.
