Freezing rain made for a messy commute throughout the Greater Toronto Area and much of Ontario on Thursday morning, but Environment Canada is warning that the worst of the rough weather may still be ahead.
The weather agency says most of the precipitation is expected this evening in the form of up to 20 mm of freezing rain and ice pellets, which threatens to wreak “quite serious consequences,” especially in the GTA to Lake Huron area.
Environment Canada is also warning about possible widespread power outages caused by winds gusting up to 60 km/h combined with ice accumulation on power lines.
The blast of wintry weather walloped much of Ontario as a storm moved in from the United States carrying heavy rain, ice pellets, strong winds and even some snow.
Winter storm warnings covered much of central Ontario from the Bruce Peninsula through Barrie, Peterborough, Belleville and Kingston.
