FREEZING RAIN AND HEAVY RAINFALL WARNING
Freezing rain and rainfall warning in effect for.....St. Thomas - Aylmer - Eastern Elgin County
Significant ice storm continues into this afternoon. Power outages likely.
Portions of Southwestern Ontario continue to report a mix of ice pellets and freezing rain.
This icy mix is expected to continue into the afternoon before changing over to straight rain as temperatures begin to rise above the freezing mark.
The ice buildup won't likely be as severe as earlier expected - perhaps up to 10 mm.
However, strong winds gusting to 80 km/h in combination with the ice accumulation will likely still result in many power outages due to fallen trees limbs and power lines.
Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads, worsened by fallen tree limbs.
