Possible freezing rain for Guelph, southern Wellington County

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT ENVIRONMENT CANADA ************************* Special weather statement in effect for:

Some brief freezing rain is possible today. Light precipitation is moving into portions of Southern Ontario this morning. The precipitation may initially begin as light freezing rain before temperatures quickly rise above the freezing mark. Over areas of higher terrain away from Lake Ontario including the Oak Ridges Moraine, temperatures may be slower to rise, remaining near or just below the freezing mark into the early afternoon. In these locations, the patchy freezing rain may persist into early afternoon. Slippery conditions are possible on untreated surfaces. Conditions will be monitored closely and freezing rain warnings will be issued if required.

A storm is set to move in Saturday sending Northern and Western counties the chance for sleet and freezing rain early. A winter weather advisory is in effect until 12 p.m. due to the potential for up to 1/10″ of ice. This could lead to slick spots and dangerous travel for parts of Howard, Carroll, Northern Baltimore, and Harford counties.

Eventually the ice changes over to plain rain by midday as temperatures warm into the upper 40s. Rain continues through the evening and most spots pick up just shy of 2 inches of rainfall. Showers should exit by midnight at the latest.
