It’s officially December and the strong winter weather is in full swing.

Freezing rain continues to fall and is expected to last for a few more hours before transitioning to freezing drizzle or flurries by this afternoon.

“Several millimeters of ice accretion are possible over these regions with some areas possibly receiving a few centimetres of ice pellets mixed with snow in addition to the freezing rain,” Environment Canada reports.

Strong wind gusts of up to 70 km/h are also in effect.

Residents are urged not to travel today if possible, as the icy roads and walkways pose a serious safety risk.
