Freezing rain warning issued for the county, with mixed bag of wintry weather expected
Glengarrians can look forward to a mix of feeling rain, snow, and rain this evening and overnight
Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for Glengarry County, forecasting a build-up of 2 to 4 mm of ice accretion this evening. Overnight, the precipitation is expected to switch to snow before changing to rain by the early morning hours as the temperature rises.
Currently, as I write this post, we are experiencing light freezing rain in Green Valley, with a thin layer of ice covering hard surfaces.
According to the Ontario government’s roads information at Ontario 511, highways in the region are bare so far. However, farther to our west, Highway 7 west from Perth is listed as partly covered.
Local roads, including Highway 401 and 417 are expected to see conditions deteriorate this evening. Motorists should be prepared for poor driving conditions.
For Wednesday, Environment Canada says we can expect the temperature to reach 3℃ with a 40 percent chance of rain showers.
