More snow and freezing rain expected


Don't put away that shovel away just yet. Another round of snow will develop overnight for the Appleby Line area and for the rest of Burlington and Oakville according to Environment Canada.

Freezing rain is also expected Sunday morning and ending Sunday afternoon. Snow will mix with ice pellets and accumulate 2 to 5 cm Sunday morning before changing to freezing rain.

Freezing rain will persist for several hours before changing back to light snow Sunday afternoon. Snow will end Sunday evening. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Slow down driving in slippery conditions.

Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
