Toronto could see freezing rain on Wednesday, warns Environment Canada

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the city of Toronto for Wednesday morning into the afternoon.

Freezing rain is possible, according to the statement, along with significant rainfall.

Up to 20 millimeters of rain could fall, with strong easterly winds gusting up to 70 kilometers per hour.

“Freezing rain is possible beginning Wednesday morning, however it is likely to mainly affect areas north of highway 401,” the statement said.

Close to the lake, temperatures will likely remain above freezing and “as a result should receive only rain.”

The risk of freezing rain will likely end by Wednesday afternoon as temperatures go up.
