FREEZING RAIN ALERT FOR Cornwall ON Area for Monday JAN 2, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – Sunday will see more windy conditions with some early morning snow making things a bit more slippery.

Our overnight low will be -5c leading into potential Freezing Rain Monday with more rain coming on Tuesday.  A shift of a degree or two can be the difference between snow, rain, and freezing rain.

Monday’s high will be +2 with a low of -3c.  We will update as new alerts come out.


5:25 AM EST Sunday 01 January 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Cornwall – Lancaster
  • Maxville – Alexandria
  • Morrisburg – Long Sault
  • Winchester – Newington

The threat of some freezing rain beginning Monday night into Tuesday.

Yet another Colorado low pressure system is forecast to develop over the next couple of days, and begin trekking towards the Great Lakes. As moisture from the Gulf of Mexico is drawn northwards with the advancing low, some wintery precipitation is expected to develop later Monday night. It may begin as snow or ice pellets but will likely change to some freezing rain overnight Monday night and continue into Tuesday morning.

Untreated roads may become quite icy and treacherous, especially for the Tuesday morning commute. A freezing rain warning will likely be issued as the event approaches.
