Significant winter storm in the forecast for Mississauga


Environment Canada says a “significant winter storm” is in the forecast for Halton and Peel (Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon, Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills) on Saturday, Jan. 11.

The weather agency says a low-pressure system will impact southern Ontario this weekend.

Rain, freezing rain, and snow are all possible with this system.

Environment Canada says significant rainfall amounts are expected for areas north of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Freezing rain is expected to affect most areas from east of Lake Huron to eastern Ontario.

Significant ice accretion or build-up is possible. Snow will affect areas east of Georgian Bay with significant snowfall amounts.
