Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • City of Hamilton

A low pressure system tracking toward southern Ontario today will bring a wintery mix of precipitation to the region. Snow has begun across much of southwestern Ontario and it continues to spead eastward. The snow is forecast to transition to ice pellets and freezing rain from west to east later today, beginning around noon in the Winsor area and by mid to late afternoon in the Hamilton, Oakville and Niagara regions. The freezing precipitation will persist for a few hours before tapering to some light rain or drizzle as temperatures rise above the freezing mark early this evening.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
