Cornwall Ontario – All School Buses are CANCELLED for Monday April 16, 2018 as Mother Nature has had the last laugh after a weekend of snow, freezing rain, and ice pellets!
There is still a freezing rain alert for the area in effect as well as the mini ice storm of 18 continues to wreak havoc.
A High of 5c may warm things up into rain which will continue into the week and clean this mess up!
11:02 PM EDT Sunday 15 April 2018
Freezing rain warning in effect for:
- Cornwall – Lancaster
- Maxville – Alexandria
- Morrisburg – Long Sault
- Winchester – Newington
Freezing rain tonight. Localized power outages likely.
Periods of freezing rain continue across much of Eastern and Central Ontario. It should persist through the night and change to rain later Monday morning.
Ice accumulations of 5 to 10 mm combined with gusty northeast wind to 50 to 60 km/h will likely result in some power outages due to fallen tree limbs and power lines.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Beware of branches or electrical wires that could break under the weight of ice.
