NATION VALLEY — Environment Canada forecasts continued freezing rain through this evening (April 15), tapering off tomorrow morning in Eastern Ontario.

After yesterday’s substantial snowfall and plunging temperatures, a broad area of freezing rain mixed with ice pellets has moved across much of Eastern and Central Ontario, according to the federal agency. “Current information suggests this freezing rain mix will persist through the evening and taper off during the morning hours on Monday.”

Much of the province has been hit with messy, wintery weather this weekend.

Environment Canada continues to warn that ice accumulations of 5 to 10 mm combined with gusty northeast wind up to 50 km/h may result in some power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines. Toronto has experienced power outages today, according to media reports.
