Freezing Rain Warning

Environment Canada has extended freezing rain warnings into southern Quebec including Montreal. A wide band of moderate freezing rain has been affecting the Kingston to Cornwall area and is now moving into our region. The band has a history of rapidly depositing 10 to 15mm of ice. Ice storm warnings are also in effect for the US side of the St. Lawrence Valley. The official statement from the NWS in Burlington can be found HERE. Travel will be very slow in all regions this afternoon. Highway 401 has been closed in sections due to numerous accidents. Also some power outages have been reported in eastern Ontario.
