Ice Storm Warning issued this weekend

Ice Storm Warning issued this weekend

Today's weather prediction of freezing rain and ice into the overnight hours has prompted one Onondaga County school district to make changes to tonight's scheduled prom.

The temperature is expected to drop to -1 C by Saturday afternoon, with the federal weather agency calling for "patch freezing drizzle".

There you have it - the weekend weather forecast isn't pleasant, and you might want to prepare for the worst. However, as the low approaches tonight, freezing rain and ice pellets will likely become widespread again and persist most of Sunday before changing over to rain later in the day.

On Saturday, scattered rain showers will start to mix with freezing rain and snow farther south.

On Saturday, the agency warned the storm could be reminiscent of the 2013 ice storm that blanketed the region and caused wide-spread power outages.

Weekend: Rain, freezing rain, possible ice storm

Environment Canada is warning an ice storm is likely to hit Hamilton, Burlington and Niagara this weekend, bringing with it freezing rain and ice pellets.

First, on Friday the 13th, severe thunderstorms, complete with golf ball sized hail and very gusty winds, barreled through southern Wisconsin. Widespread flooding, power outages and unsafe road conditions are in the future for Southern and Eastern Ontario due to both the freezing rain and strong winds.

Residents are urged to prepare for a wintry storm this Sunday and Monday.

And there is a lakeshore flood warning from noon on Saturday to 2pm on Sunday for Monroe and Orleans counties with the strong northeasterly winds possibly resulting in lakeshore flooding.
