Potential for icy conditions today
A special weather statement is in effect for Chatham-Kent – Rondeau Park and Windsor – Leamington – Essex County.
Environment Canada says icy conditions will likely develop later this morning and this afternoon.
Meteorologists say rain and patches of dense fog will continue to affect the area early this morning. The rain is forecast to change to snow by midday as temperatures plummet with the passage of a cold front. There may also be a brief period of freezing rain during the changeover from rain to snow.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots could become icy and slippery. Extra care should be taken when walking or driving in affected areas.
The snow is forecast to taper off behind the cold front, limiting snowfall amounts to a few centimetres at most.
