Freezing rain on the way for Stratford

Sadly, the precipitation may start off as freezing rain early in the morning before quickly changing to rain as temperatures rise above the freezing mark (which is, of course, great news).

Freezing rain was expected to move into Waterloo-Wellington - as well as Oxford-Brant, Huron-Perth, Grey-Bruce and most of the rest of southern Ontario - on Thursday morning.

Temperatures in Waterloo Region are expected to hit their highest level in months on Thursday - and Environment Canada is warning of a potential ice storm two days later. Closer to the Lake Ontario shore, only rain is expected.

According to the statement, a complex weather system will affect much of southern and eastern Ontario this weekend and possibly into Monday. However, "increasing northeasterly winds" will bring colder air from an arctic high pressure system to the north, and that rain will turn to freezing rain and ice pellets.

At this point, there is still considerable uncertainty with regards to which areas may be most affected.

However, there is a potential for this to be a high impact storm.

Meteorologists say the change to freezing rain could be delayed until later in the day Saturday.

Periods of rain with a chance of freezing rain is forecast for Friday before a big blast of snow this weekend.

Ice buildup could be in excess of 20 millimeters (0.79 inches) and, coupled with wind up 60 kilometers an hour, could lead to power outages due to falling tree limbs and power lines.

Travel is also expected to be hazardous.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
