Major ice storm continues into Sunday

Stratford Gazette

UPDATE (10:30 a.m.) The freezing rain warning for Stratford and area has ended.

Below is the original story from early Sunday.

Stratford and area remains under a freezing rain warning.

As of Sunday morning, the low pressure system originating from Texas is located just south of Lake Erie. This system has brought substantial moisture into southern Ontario.

Meanwhile, a slightly colder northerly flow has established north of this low pressure system. As a result, a major freezing rain storm will continue Sunday for portions of southern and eastern Ontario. Additional freezing rainfall amounts on the order of 10 to 15 mm are possible.

For areas south of a line from Sarnia to Oxford - Brant, freezing rain is expected to change to rain. For areas from Southern Lake Huron through the Greater Toronto area including Hamilton and Niagara, freezing rain will persist then change to rain or drizzle early this afternoon. For areas from Kincardine to Lake Simcoe then east to Kingston, freezing rain could last into this afternoon. For areas from Brockville to Cornwall, before freezing rain starting this afternoon, ice pellets will persist this morning.

Freezing rain is expected to continue into early this evening. Driving conditions on untreated roads are very hazardous as well.
