New Winter Weather Warning in Effect for Mississauga

New Winter Weather Warning in Effect for Mississauga

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for some parts of MA from 8 p.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Environment Canada is predicting freezing rain and ... wait for it ... an ice storm this weekend.

Freezing rain could reach farther south Saturday night, into the Finger Lakes and Central New York, but the weather service said it's still unclear if temperatures will drop far enough for ice to form.

Ice build up of 10 to 20 mm is pretty likely across the region by Sunday morning.

Sleet accumulation of less than an inch Saturday night and less than half an inch Sunday are expected.

Cameron is expecting a "miserable" day for April on Sunday, with temperatures in the 30s, rain, drizzle, and an icy mix that could include sleet and perhaps even freezing rain.

Heavy rain is expected for marathon Monday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Dunham said, and the temperature will climb to the upper 40s by afternoon.

Slippery roads, sidewalks and paved surfaces will make for very hard travel and greatly complicate any outdoor activities in affected areas.

"Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads Saturday and Sunday".
