Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
  • St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region

A low pressure system developing over the American Plains will track towards southern Ontario today, bringing a wintery mix of precipitation to the region. Snow accompanied by some ice pellets is expected to develop early this morning over extreme Southwestern Ontario and reach the Golden Horseshoe near midday. It is forecast to transition to freezing rain near midday in the southwest and this afternoon in the Hamilton and Niagara corridor. The freezing rain will persist for a few hours before tapering to some light rain or drizzle as temperatures nudge above the freezing mark early this evening.
