Environment Canada calls for ice pellets, freezing rain in Cambridge

Prepare for power outages in upcoming winter storm

A Wind Advisory for westerly winds gusting to 50 miles per hour has been issued beginning late this afternoon and continuing overnight for all of the Chicago area encompassing northeast IL into northwest Indiana.

Freezing drizzle tonight and tomorrow. The rest of the GTA is under a winter weather travel advisory.

It warns freezing rain Thursday and high winds early Friday could cause more problems, like downed wires or other safety hazards. For areas more north and west, the mercury could drop a couple of degrees colder.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until midnight Thursday night for the area including La Crosse, Winona, Buffalo, Trempealeau, Jackson, and Monroe counties.

There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. "Although it looks like Mother Nature may have the upper hand sometimes we will get these roads in good shape".

"We have seen little bit of everything today". The agency says freezing rain is expected to move in later this afternoon or evening, before changing over to rain later tonight.
