Freezing Rain Warning, Risk Of 10-15 mm Ice Accumulation

Storm Sunday afternoon into Monday could cause power outages

A nasty bout of weather is shaping up for later on Sunday into Monday.

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Barrie, Orillia, Simcoe County and Muskoka, as well as northern York Region, Durham, Grey and Dufferin.

The temperature will hover around the zero mark tomorrow, making a tough call for forecasters as to what areas will get freezing or rain, or maybe a mixture of both.

Ice accumulation of 10 to 15 millimetres is possible.

Temperatures are expected to climb above freezing around midday Monday changing in any freezing rain to rain.

Travel is expected to be very poor Sunday into Monday, especially over higher terrain where colder temperatures will result in more ice build-up on untreated surfaces.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Utility outages may occur.
