4/15/2018 10:54:12 AM
Rainfall and freezing rain warning in effect for... Exeter - London - Parkhill - Eastern Middlesex County
Strathroy - Komoka - Western Middlesex County
Freezing rain may be rather heavy before it changes to rain later this afternoon.
The ice buildup won't likely be as severe as earlier expected - perhaps up to 10 mm.
However, strong winds gusting to 70 km/h in combination with the ice accumulation will likely still result in many power outages due to fallen trees limbs and power lines.
Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected on untreated roads, worsened by fallen tree limbs.
Travel is not recommended. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and extremely hazardous.
Following some morning freezing rain, a round of significant rainfall is expected this afternoon into this evening.
The rain may fall heavily at times with amounts likely in the 20 to 30 mm range.
Some additional rainfall is likely overnight into Monday, albeit lighter. Total rainfall amounts for the weekend may be in the
30 to 40 mm range with localized amounts of 50 to 60 mm possible.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.
