Environment Canada calling for 'potentiallly historic ice storm' this weekend

Winter just won't end: Snow, freezing rain forecasted for Montreal

The weather agency says southwestern Ontario in particular is facing a "potentially historic ice storm", adding that freezing rain will likely lead to widespread power outages.

"This may result in massive ice storm for some areas where the process can be formed more than 20 millimeters of ice".

Toronto and parts of southern Ontario should brace for a mixed bag of unusual April weather as an icy weather system makes its way into the region. 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.

Rain will change to freezing rain on Saturday - you can expect to see it into the evening hours.

Tyler Chatwood (0-1, 1.50 ERA) will make his second start of the season and his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs. Rizzo was to have been re-evaluated Tuesday morning before the Cubs determined it best to place him on the DL.

A freezing rain warning is now in effect for the city, along with much of Wellington County and Waterloo Region, and could see as much as 25 mm of ice buildup by Sunday afternoon.

The severe threat moved out Friday morning, but a few thunderstorms and showers are likely Friday afternoon and evening. The images below should help you get a feel for when your area changes from rain to freezing rain and sleet. A significant accumulation of ice pellets is likely. Strong winds gusting to 60 km/h are also expected tonight and Sunday. About 0.10 to 0.30 inches of ice isn't out of the question, which could cause problems on the roads.

Unsafe winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads Saturday and Sunday, worsened by fallen tree limbs.
