Freezing rain warning issued parts of GTA



A freezing rain warning was issued for areas north of Toronto this morning.

Canada's Environment Ministry included Caledon, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, Newmarket and Georgina in the weather report, released on Monday morning.

"Some clear snow or ice pellets can affect the area late this morning until afternoon, but any accumulation should be limited to a few centimeters at most. Slippery local conditions are possible, "the national weather agency said.

"A more significant area of ​​precipitation is expected to move into the area early in the evening. A few hours of freezing rain are possible before precipitation changes into late afternoon rainfall, particularly in higher altitude areas such as the Dundalk Highlands. "

While the amount of frozen rainfall is expected to be relatively light, Environment Canada claims that untreated surfaces can still become slippery due to ice.

Meanwhile, Pickering, Oshawa and the southern region of Durham are currently under a special climatic statement.

Environment Canada said a "weak strip" of light snow can be mixed with mid-afternoon ice pellets.

"A more significant area of ​​precipitation is expected to move into the area early in the evening. A brief period of freezing rain is possible at night before rainfall turns into rain, especially in areas far from Lake Ontario, "the weather agency said.

"Drivers are urged to be cautious, especially tonight, as untreated roads can become slippery. There may be an impact on the night path. "
