A moisture laden low from Texas will continue to bring significant rainfall to Central Ontario today, with 20 to 40 mm of rain expected over most of the area.

Since the ground is frozen, the winter rainfall warning criterion of 25 mm in 24 hours is being met.

The rain is expected to change over to freezing rain, mixed in some areas with ice pellets, this afternoon.

For information concerning flooding, please consult your local conservation authority or Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry district office.

Ice accretion of 10 to 20 mm is possible in some areas.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur.
