  • Parts of Southern Ontario could be hit with an ice storm this weekend according to Environment Canada

Up to 25 millimetres of ice is expected to build up throughout the region by Sunday morning, according to a freezing rain warning issued by Environment Canada on Saturday.

The special weather statement for the capital region remained unchanged Friday with a warning of a "messy mix" into Monday.

Most of Saturday will bring southern lower MI mostly rain, however freezing rain may creep southward, especially in the afternoon. Snow changing to freezing rain is likely for the Greater Montreal, the Outaouais and the Eastern Townships. Widespread flooding, power outages and risky road conditions are in the future for Southern and Eastern Ontario due to both the freezing rain and strong winds.

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

The rain isn't expected to end until Monday.

The forecast for this weekend is calling for hard travel conditions in many places with the possibility of power outages and other damage as well. Significant rain may fall late Sunday and Sunday night creating localized flooding.

Gusty winds will also develop and combined with some accumulating ice can cause some downed trees and power lines.

Bill Shea of Toronto Water advised residents to check on their eaves troughs before the storm hits.
