January 11 weather statement from Environment Canada

Rain to pelt London region as massive snowfall ends, Environment Canada says

Freezing drizzle was expected to last well into later this evening.

Dense fog patches have been observed across portions of northeastern Ontario today.

On Thursday morning, Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Toronto, Hamilton, and the regions of Halton, Peel, York, and Durham, warning that a "very strong cold front" will follow the mild temperatures and rainy weather today. "Rain changing to snow tonight with a hard freeze". Snowfall amounts of 10 cm are likely for areas close to lake Superior with only a few cm of snow in other areas. Environment Canada will monitor this situation closely. Rain will quickly transition to snow, with a risk of brief freezing rain during the changeover.

"Ponding water, slush, and any falling precipitation will freeze as the temperature drops", Environment Canada said on its site.

According to the winter weather travel advisory for Almaguin, issued at 4:46 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 10, and ended at 10:21 p.m., occasional light rain and drizzle was expected to continue this evening across the regions.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous.

It turns out the two-day reprieve from the biting sub-zero temperatures - after a weeks-long deep freeze that's prompted extreme cold warnings across Southwestern Ontario - was short-lived.
