If you thought we would get through March with out some winter weather, that was wishful thinking. As you look outside Environment Canada’s Freezing Rain Warning is a reality. Halton Regional Police twitter account states that there is a thin layer of ice covering the Oakville’s roads. So if possible try to stay home till later on, when the ice will melt.

Here is Environment Canada’s Freezing Rain Warning which was issued Thursday, March 24, 2016 at 4:43 AM:

Freezing rain has developed and is expected to continue today.

Several hours of freezing rain have been reported overnight resulting in ice accretion and several power outages.

Between 5 and 10 mm of ice accumulation are possible before the freezing rain changes to rain this afternoon as temperatures slowly inch above zero.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur.
