Snow, ice pellets, freezing rain on tap for Almaguin this weekend

Environment Canada has released a special weather statement for London-Middlesex as rain on Saturday is expected to change to freezing rain as colder air moves in. Snow and ice pellets will likely affect portions of central and eastern Ontario Friday night into Saturday night with significant accumulations possible. Power outages and tree damage are "likely" due to the winds and ice, and travel will be hard at times due to ice-covered surfaces and downed tree limbs and power lines.

The storm could cause power outages and tree damage. The temperature will fall to minus 3C in the afternoon.

Rain started Saturday morning then changed into freezing rain, with ice pellets and high wind making driving hard.

A freezing rain warning is in place for Peterborough and southern Peterborough County, Lindsay and southern Kawartha Lakes, and Northumberland County, with an ice storm forecast for Sunday. It will bring a combination of heavy rain, wind, sleet and freezing rain to West Michigan.

Environment Canada said travel could become hard on Sunday and Monday due to snow and freezing rain. Freezing rain may also become mixed with or turn into ice pellets. Travel will become treacherous to almost impossible at times between Saturday night and early Sunday.

Rain is expected to taper off later Monday. As a result, there is the potential for widespread power outages.
