Freezing rain warning for Wednesday morning


freezing rain

We may not be in Atlantic Canada, but that doesn’t mean winter has released its annoying grasp on us just yet. Check out this statement from Environment Canada:

Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Chatham-Kent – Rondeau Park
  • Windsor – Leamington – Essex County

Some freezing rain likely for Wednesday morning.

A developing low pressure area originating in Colorado is forecast to track across the Central Great Lakes on Wednesday. Precipitation is expected to arrive in the form of freezing rain towards dawn early Wednesday morning over Extreme Southwestern Ontario and spread northeastwards through the morning.

It will likely persist for a few hours in some areas and may pose hazardous driving conditions Wednesday morning given the cold overnight temperatures just prior to the precipitation. Also, it may fall somewhat heavily in some locales with 2 to 5 millimetres of ice accumulation possible.

Much milder air will change the freezing rain to rain from west to east during the day before tapering off.

A freezing rain warning will likely be issued later today as the affected regions become more clear.
