Environment Canada says storm could cause travel issues, power outages
Brockville – Environment Canada is calling for a potential ice storm for parts of Southern and Eastern Ontario Saturday and Sunday.
In the Belleville, Kingston and Brockville areas, the storm may start out as rain until colder air is pulled down into the region and turns it into freezing rain, Environment Canada said.
While there’s still “considerable uncertainty” about what kind of precipitation will fall where, it has the potential to drop more than 20 millimetres of freezing rain in some areas.
Winds may gust up to 60 kilometres an hour, which could cause power outages, and the storm could also make travel dangerous.
As well there is the potential for some areas to receive ice accumulations in excess of 20 millimetres. Heavy rain potential later Sunday and Sunday night.
