Spring storm could bring snow, freezing rain over weekend: Environment Canada

Environment Canada says a freezing rain warning is now in effect for Mississauga, Brampton, Halton Hills, Milton, Oakville and Burlington.

Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said there had been more than 200 collisions on the highways in the Greater Toronto Area by Saturday afternoon.

A freezing rain warning is now in effect for the city, along with much of Wellington County and Waterloo Region, and could see as much as 25 mm of ice buildup by Sunday afternoon.

The agency is warning the public to stay off the roads, as driving conditions are likely to become treacherous with the blast of wintery weather.

Rain started Saturday morning then changed into freezing rain, with ice pellets and high wind making driving hard.

Environment Canada is warning of possible power outages related to the freezing rain and the gusting winds from the northwest are expected to accompany the storm.
