Messy mix of weather expected across Southern Ontario


A low will push across Southern Ontario and a portion of northeastern Ontario on Wednesday bringing snow, ice pellets, rain, and freezing rain.


Precipitation will begin on early on Wednesday morning with a wintery mix of rain, snow, ice pellets and freezing rain.


About 5 to 10 cm of snow is expected from Sault Ste. Marie to Sudbury.


An extended period of freezing rain is possible for much of southern Ontario. In some areas, there could be 5 to 10 mm of freezing rain. This will likely lead to power outages. Strong easterly winds gusting up to 70 km/h are also expected.


Areas to the north and south of Lake Ontario will likely remain as rain with 10 to 20 mm possible.


Precipitation will end on Wednesday evening.


In areas where ice pellets and freezing rain occur, roads and walkways could be slippery.


Rain combined with snowmelt may result in some water build-up on the roads.
