          Freezing rain a growing concern Saturday        Ice accumulations of over.25 possible

As we previously reported, Environment Canada released an alert early this morning, warning residents of Southern Ontario that a "potentially historic ice storm" is set to hit tonight.

"The combination of excessive ice accumulations and strong winds will likely result in widespread power outages due to fallen trees and power lines", the freezing rain warning read.

The weather agency is warning that periods of rain starting Friday could change into freezing rain by Saturday morning as cooler temperatures set in.

Rain will change to freezing rain, which is expected to persist into the evening, and may become mixed with ice pellets before tapering off to patchy freezing drizzle. There is a flood watch in effect from late Sunday night through Tuesday afternoon for Monroe and several other counties. Up to an inch of freezing rain is possible in some locations.




Toronto's Pearson Airport says travellers should check their flight status online before heading out, because the weather could lead to cancellations. Cold air will infiltrate the moisture, especially Saturday afternoon and evening, pushing that transition from rain to snow farther south into West Michigan.

Hydro One says it has crews ready to respond to outages 24/7, and additional resources are on standby this weekend.

By Sunday, parts of the region could be grappling with up to 25 millimetres of frozen ice accumulation.

Drivers were urged to take extra care, as gusty winds and broken tree limbs could add to the danger on icy roads.
