Freezing Warning In Effect for Brampton and Surrounding Cities

Freezing Warning In Effect for Brampton and Surrounding Cities

Environment Canada has issued weather warnings for the region that stretches from Windsor, Ont., up to the Muskoka region and east to Ottawa.

The best chance of seeing ice storm conditions will be between northern Kent County and Cadillac Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Ice accumulations of this magnitude combined with gusty winds to 60 km/h may result in widespread power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.

The agency says ice build up of 10 to 20 millimetres appears likely across the region by Sunday morning, adding that it will be less in areas close to Lake Ontario.

A powerful low will move across the Great Lakes, whipping up strong winds and heavy rain for most of southern lower MI through the day Saturday.

The scientists also explored the effectiveness of using high-efficiency particulate air filters with the hand dryers. Scientists set off hand dryers in the bathrooms and placed a special plate just beneath them for 30 seconds.

A messy wallop of snow and ice and freezing rain will come a bit later than expected, but is due to reach Eastern Ontario Saturday evening.

That could cause power outages and tree damage there as well, the weather service said.

"We've got cars in the ditches, we've got cars on the concrete wall, we've got cars facing the wrong way", he said.

Forecasts were calling for a lengthy period of freezing rain during the day on Saturday, returning Saturday evening. However, there is a potential for this to be a high impact storm. About one-half-inch of ice is expected to accumulate.

Toronto's Pearson Airport advised passengers to check their flight status before leaving, with hundreds of flight cancellations and delays being reported by Saturday afternoon. According to CTV News, by early afternoon around 8000 people were left without power.
