Freezing rain expected to change to drizzle in GTA, Environment Canada says
Environment Canada says the freezing rain, which could be mixed with ice pellets and snow in some areas, will continue until early afternoon. It is expected to turn to drizzle as temperatures rise above zero later today.
Freezing rain warnings in effect throughout the region
A freezing rain warning is still in effect for the Greater Toronto Area Thursday.
Environment Canada says the freezing rain, which could be mixed with ice pellets and snow in some areas, should end this afternoon with the possibility it will change to rain or drizzle as temperatures rise above zero.
“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery,” the federal weather agency says.
“There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”
The freezing rain warnings prompted Durham Region to cancel all schools buses for both its public and Catholic boards for the day.
Those who live or work particularly close to Lake Ontario, however, may not see any freezing rain as temperatures along the shoreline are forecast to remain above zero throughout the day.
