Could Be an Icy Monday


The good news is, Wiarton Willie said we’re in for an early Spring, the bad news is freezing rain to start the new work week.

A disturbance that is pushing well above normal temperatures in southern Ontario with temperatures near plus 9c leaves Sault Ste. Marie on the boundary of cooler air to the north and the warm air to the south. The result is freezing rain and Environment Canada has issued an advisory for the area for Monday morning.

Freezing drizzle advisory in effect for:

Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Areas of freezing drizzle are expected or occurring.

Freezing drizzle continues.

The freezing drizzle may become patchy later this evening, but overnight and into Monday morning more widespread freezing drizzle or light freezing rain will redevelop.

This freezing drizzle or light freezing rain will end by Monday evening.

There is potential for the freezing drizzle advisories to be upgraded to freezing rain warnings.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Freezing drizzle can produce thin, hard-to-detect layers of ice. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Freezing drizzle advisories are issued when drizzle falling in sub-zero temperatures is expected to freeze on contact, and over time create icy surfaces.
