FREEZING DRIZZLE ADVISORY

Environment Canada:


Freezing drizzle advisory in effect for:

  • Guelph - Erin - Southern Wellington County
  • Kitchener - Cambridge - Region of Waterloo
  • Mount Forest - Arthur - Northern Wellington County

Freezing drizzle today.

Periods of freezing drizzle are expected to affect the region today. There is the potential for a brief period of freezing rain this afternoon before temperatures rise above zero and the precipitation changes to rain or drizzle.

Challenging winter travelling conditions are expected today due to the prolonged period of icing.

In the wake of this weather system, strong westerly winds with gusts in the 60 to 80 km/h range may be possible tonight into Friday.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. 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.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
