Freezing rain is possible and may lead to icy surfaces. The rainfall amounts up to 20 mm may result in localized water pooling on roads. Strong easterly winds gusting up to 70 km/h.

This will start this morning through this afternoon.

Freezing rain is possible beginning this morning. However it is likely to mainly affect areas north of highway 401. Areas near the shores of Lake Ontario are likely to remain above the freezing mark, and as a result should receive only rain.
