Ice storm warning in effect starting at 2 pm, for 24 hours

The nasty ice and freezing rain will end by Noon Sunday with temperatures rising quickly.

A powerful low will move across the Great Lakes, whipping up strong winds and heavy rain for most of southern lower MI through the day Saturday.

In some areas of southern Ontario "much longer" freezing rain can be on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15.

Coupled with wind gusts up to 80 kilometres per hour, it's enough to knock out power and down trees, Environment Canada said.

On Saturday, Environment Canada issued freezing rain warnings for southern Ontario, where power outages are expected.

The weather left roads slippery, at a time of year when many people had already removed their winter tires.

Localized flooding from the downpour is also possible, the national weather agency said in a statement Saturday morning.

"However, freezing rain will likely become widespread again".

"This has the potential to be a major ice storm for some regions with ice accumulations in excess of 20 millimetres possible".

The inclement weather is forecast to persist into this evening, with several centimetres of ice pellets expected. Travellers are being warned to check their flights online before heading out.

Due to the severe weather, Wilfrid Laurier University has shut down its Waterloo and Brantford campuses on Saturday.

The companies say that their first priorities are to respond to known incidents of downed power lines to make the situations safe.
