Freezing rain for the GTA starting Wednesday afternoon

Freezing drizzle advisory for SD&G

"It could be around 12 hours or possibly even more of freezing rain through the area", said Rozinskis. The warmest temperatures of the day will be near -14°C and overnight lows will fall to near -20°C.

Snow is expected from Monday through Wednesday night with three-to-seven inches of snowfall on Tuesday night, according to the Weather Service. The freezing rain from Highway 8 on north Monday will wind down by the early afternoon.

People will want to prepare for possible disruptions by checking out the Consumers Energy Outage Center, which includes tips on the safe operation of generators and staying at least 25 feet away from any downed power lines.

All the precipitation has prompted a public reminder from the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) about rising levels in lakes, streams, and rivers.

The map below shows where we believe the real icing issues are expected into Wednesday morning.

A band of sleet and freezing rain may extend from parts of Missouri to lower MI.

Officials measured 20-40 mm of water in the existing snow pack last week, which is below normal for this time of year.

The mountains will pick up some decent totals with this storm and are under a winter storm warning until 5 a.m. Thursday.

Wednesday and Thursday will be warmer, with highs around 39 on Wednesday, and 45 on Thursday, and a chance of light rain both days.

For the Lehigh Valley, we'll just see a very rainy night with the highest rainfall amounts perhaps between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
