Heavy rainfall and freezing rain on the way for Windsor region

Parts of Southern Ontario could be hit with an ice storm this weekend according to Environment Canada

According to the statement, updated at 11:08 a.m. Thursday, April 12, a messy mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain is expected this weekend.

"However, the potential exists for some locales to see amounts in access of 20 millimetres of freezing rain on Sunday".

Unsafe winter driving conditions are likely as untreated roads will become snow covered and slippery.

Today's weather prediction of freezing rain and ice into the overnight hours has prompted one Onondaga County school district to make changes to tonight's scheduled prom.

Forecasts were calling for a lengthy period of freezing rain during the day on Saturday, returning Saturday evening.

The rain may become ice pellets at certain times.

Mega Millions Jackpot victor announced
The payout is the largest single lottery win claimed in the state and the fourth-largest payout in Mega Millions history. Richard Wahl says he bought an easy pick ticket for the $533 million jackpot in last month's drawing at a gas station.

Ice will likely accumulate and glaze roadways, creating tricky winter driving conditions if untreated.

"Snow changing to freezing rain is possible for the Greater Montreal, the Outaouais and the Eastern Townships". It is predicted that this ice storm is actually going to cause some havoc. Enough rain may fall later Sunday into Sunday night for some flooding to be an issue to deal with then.

"The combination of excessive ice accumulations and strong winds will likely result in widespread power outages due to fallen trees and power lines", the warning read.

Wind will come from the northeast at 30 km/h, gusting to 50.
