Environment Canada  has decided to prolong its already issued freezing rain warning for Waterloo-Wellington along with most of south-central Ontario as of 8:21 a.m. Monday. The statement issued from Environment Canada explained that a cluttered combination of winter weather is stirring in northeast direction across the southern parts of the province, with an expected 15 centimeters of snow in the North Bay and Sault Ste. Marie areas to the north. Whereas, area of Kitchener is expected to have freezing rain fallen overnight.

Reports from the Ontario Provincial Police confirm several minor crashes on slippery highways, majority of which were eastward, into and through Toronto. In result of a tractor-trailer jackknifing between Cedar Creek Road and Drumbo Road, southwest of Ayr, Highway 401 had to be closed for westbound traffic at 8:20 a.m. The examination process of Waterloo Region high schools has also been postponed due to the weather. Apart from the Waterloo Region, the freezing rain warning also encompasses areas including Wellington, Perth, Huron, Grey, Bruce, Oxford and Brant counties, and eastward through the Toronto area.

This warning is caused by low pressure system, that has reached the area from Colorado, pushing a warm front ahead of it. Consequently, the front will expectedly remain over Georgian Bay east of Toronto by Monday evening, while the snow will expectedly change to freezing rain, rain and drizzle by midday in southern Ontario. Near record daytime highs of 10 C are expected Tuesday and Wednesday in the Kitchener area, with rain.
