Freezing rain may become mixed with or turn over to ice pellets at times, with some areas receiving a few centimetres of the ice pellet mess.

The National Weather Service Saturday issued an ice storm warning as freezing rain forecast from 2 p.m. Saturday through 2 p.m. Sunday is expected to bring a half-inch accumulation of ice.

The weather agency says southwestern Ontario in particular is facing a "potentially historic ice storm", adding that freezing rain will likely lead to widespread power outages.

Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said there had been more than 200 collisions on the highways in the Greater Toronto Area by Saturday afternoon.

The weather agency is warning that periods of rain starting Friday could change into freezing rain by Saturday morning as cooler temperatures set in. "We've got problems all over the place".




There is a Freezing Rain Warning for York, Peel, and Durham regions as well as the south end of Dufferin County, Toronto, and Hamilton.

Significant icing and gusty winds are expected. However, there is a potential for this to be a high impact storm.

Environment Canada called it "quite likely" that between 10 and 20 mm of ice would accumulate by Sunday morning, with even more possible in localized areas. By early Saturday afternoon, about 8,000 people were without power.

The companies say that their first priorities are to respond to known incidents of downed power lines to make the situations safe.
