Freezing rain, big warmup in forecast as ice storm lurks

More targeted weather watches or warnings from Environment Canada are likely to be issued on Friday.

According to the statement, updated at 11:08 a.m. Thursday, April 12, a messy mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain is expected this weekend.

Environment Canada says there could be ice accumulations of more than 20 millimeters in some areas. Closer to the Lake Ontario shore, only rain is expected. 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. "A few rounds of precipitation are likely during this period with a significant threat of prolonged freezing rain in some areas".

In some areas of southern Ontario "much longer" freezing rain can be on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15.

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

The freezing rain will change back to rain, which will be "possibly heavy at times", early Sunday as temperatures rise, the federal agency said in its weather statement. However, areas closer to Lake Ontario may remain slightly milder on Saturday with a changeover to freezing rain not expected until later in the day. "Layers of ice of this magnitude, combined with the wind gusts, which can reach 60 km/h, can lead to significant interruptions in the supply of electricity, caused by fallen tree branches and breaks power lines", - said meteorologists of the Ministry of environmental protection of Canada.
