A freezing rain storm is expected to hit southwestern Ontario in the middle of the week, according to a tweet from Environment Canada.

The storm will move across southern parts of the province on Wednesday night and continue into Thursday. Prolonged periods of freezing rain are expected, which could result in significant ice accretion.

Freezing rain could be mixed with ice pellets and light snow, according to the infographic from Environment Canada.

The wintery conditions will likely continue into Thursday morning.

At this point, the exact timing and amounts of precipitation expected are still uncertain.

“Monitor your forecasts over the coming days for more details as confidence increases,” the weather agency wrote in a follow-up Tweet.
