CityNews | posted Monday, Jan 16th, 2017


Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto and the GTA, calling for the potential of freezing rain on Tuesday.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor says the freezing rain will start in the GTA around 1 a.m. on Tuesday and then change to rain by 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. as the temperature rises.

CityNews weather specialist Frank Ferragine said the risk of freezing drizzle will start after 9 p.m. on Monday.

The national weather agency says the switch over to rain may happen later in other areas of southern Ontario, with rain arriving in the afternoon or evening.

Taylor said around 15 millimetres of rain could fall in the GTA on Tuesday accompanied by a gusty wind.

Warmer than usual temperatures are in store for most of the week. Monday’s high is a mild 4 C, and temperatures are expected to be between 3-5 C for the rest of the week.
