UPDATE Sunday, March 10th: Freezing rain warning ENDS as a Special weather statement remains in effect for the Parry Sound region advising of strong winds.

Southwest winds gusting to 70 or 80 km/h are expected to develop Sunday morning into the afternoon.

These winds may be strong enough to produce minor tree damage and isolated power outages, especially in locations which receive the stronger wind gusts. 

The wind will slowly diminish this evening.

Environment Canada is forecasting freezing rain for Saturday night followed by gusty winds Sunday.

The agency expects the freezing rain will begin late in the evening or after midnight.

The freezing rain will change to rain by early Sunday morning as temperatures rise above the freezing mark.

In addition to the rain, southwest winds gusting to 70 or 80 km/h will develop on Sunday and continue for much of the day.

The freezing rain is associated with a Colorado Low that will track through Northeastern Ontario on Sunday.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces
