Special weather statement in effect for:

    Newmarket - Georgina - Northern York Region
    Pickering - Oshawa - Southern Durham Region
    Uxbridge - Beaverton - Northern Durham Region
    Vaughan - Richmond Hill - Markham

Mild and rainy conditions are expected over much of southern Ontario today, tonight and into Friday.

The rain is expected to be patchy and light for much of today, but may become more widespread tonight and into Friday.  A general rainfall of 10 to 20 mm appears likely, although some areas may see higher amounts.  This rainfall in combination with the melting snowpack may result in pooling of water on roads and low-lying areas.

A very strong cold front will cross the region from northwest to southeast on Friday bringing an abrupt end to the mild spell.  Rain will quickly transition to snow, with a risk of brief freezing rain during the changeover.  Snowfall amounts are expected to be limited to a few cm.

With the much colder air moving in on Friday, icy conditions on roads and sidewalks are likely due to the freezing of residual water from either melted snow or rain.

Cloudy, wet, currently not raining but the temperature have hit double digits at 10°C, winds are gusty between 30 and 40km/h. It's forecast to start raining this afternoon.

We are under a heavy rainfall warning from EC for rains between 50 to 80mm some areas may receive over 100mm.

Warnings
4:39 AM AST Friday 12 January 2018
Rainfall warning in effect for:

"Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.

A developing low pressure system today over the southeastern United States will slowly track across the Maritimes on Saturday. This system will bring a significant amount of rain to much of the province beginning over northern areas this morning and expanding southward by this afternoon. Additionally, winds will continue to pick up from the southwest with gusts up to 80 km/hr along the Fundy coast today and Saturday.

Rainfall amounts will range from 25 mm in the north to 50-80 mm in southern New Brunswick and potentially exceeding 100 mm along the Fundy coast.

The rain will change to freezing rain over northern regions of the province overnight Friday and then to snow and ice pellets Saturday afternoon before tapering off Saturday night.

With the amount of snow currently on the ground and temperatures reaching the positive double digits, substantial snow-melt and runoff is expected with the rainfall, which could lead to flooding and potential ice jams on rivers."

Hatches buttoning shall be the order of the day…and tomorrow.

It's been a busy weather week here. We've had a freezing rain warning, a smog warning, a rainfall warning, and now there's a winter storm warning for tonight / tomorrow when the temperature drops and a(nother) weather system moves through. Zowee!

+10 with light rain at the moment in downtown MTL as we wait for the temperature to start dropping later this afternoon. Hope it won't be too icy during the commute home.

Well the temperature has dropped like a stone, it went from plus15°C at the 11AM AST recording to 0°C by the 1PM AST recording. It's still 0°C at this time (2:30PM AST.)

There is a flash freeze warning in effect from EC as evidenced by the 15°C drop within two hours. The forecast low temperature for tonight is -8°C, however the temperature was forecast to drop to only zero, by 5PM AST.

It's still solid overcast with a light rain falling. Winds have swung around to the northeast at 19km/h and we have a feel like temperature of -5°.

Cloudy with a few "frost flies" floating on the light breeze, it's -8°C, feeling like -14. Everything is coated in ice as we had a bit of freezing rain and freezing drizzle last evening.

Back into a deep freeze here at -30/-33 but at least it is bright and sunny. The upcoming week looks relatively normal though with no major weather events predicted. Yet.

…as the sun slowly sets in the west, the clouds have an orange hue that I shall consider more or less pink and therefore extrapolate as red and go with "red sky at night, sailors…" 😉

As tomorrow's forecast indicates some sunshine I shall be bullish on a fine, cold, winter's day, in my near future. Minus 16°C tonight and minus single digits tomorrow.

It seems my spying of a sunset and my optimism with the interpretation of colours was overstated.

It's snowing from a completely overcast sky. The temperature is -12°C, and winds are light. The temperature has warmed from a low overnight of -16°C.

The forecast is still for a mix of sun and clouds, so maybe, just maybe we'll see some sunshine for a change.
