Freezing rain warning in effect

Freezing rain warning in effect. 

Here’s what to expect for Barrie and areas north.

Ice pellets or freezing drizzle are expected to develop Sunday morning then give way to freezing rain later in the morning. It should persist for many hours before changing to rain late in the day or Sunday evening.

Ice accumulations combined with strong northeast winds up to 70 km/h will likely result in some power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Beware of branches or electrical wires that could break under the weight of ice.

Here’s what is expected for Innisfil and areas south.


Significant freezing rain and ice pellets are expected  Sunday before changing to rain Sunday evening. Significant rain may fall Sunday night creating localized flooding.

Ice build up of 10 to possibly 15 mm is likely by Sunday evening.

Ice accumulations of this magnitude combined with gusty northeast winds of 70 km/h may result in considerable power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.

Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads, worsened by fallen tree limbs.
