After the initial excitement of record-breaking warm weather in Toronto, Environment Canada has now issued a freezing rain warning.
According to the weather agency, freezing rain is expected for Wednesday.
- Toronto broke a 27-year-old temperature record today
- City reminds residents that Coyote sightings are normal this time of year
- City warns of potential basement flooding as temperatures rise
“Precipitation is expected to begin Wednesday morning as ice pellets before becoming mixed with freezing rain near midday,” states the weather statement. “Freezing rain could persist for several hours Wednesday afternoon before ending in the evening or overnight.”
The Wednesday evening commute will likely be affected due to the potential for untreated surfaces to become icy.
Expect a high of -3°C on Wednesday, mixed with that freezing drizzle. But the temperature will soar back up to above freezing by Thursday, when highs are expected to reach 4°C.
Be safe out there, Toronto.
