Ice pellets, freezing rain, strong winds to blast London midweek

It may feel a bit like déjà vu for Londoners this Tuesday and Wednesday.

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning and special weather statement, roughly a week after freezing rain resulted in school closures, flight cancellations, and a slew of collisions.

The national weather agency is warning that snow will change briefly to ice pellets, with four to eight centimetres of accumulation expected, before the precipitation changes again to freezing rain early Tuesday morning.

Freezing rain could potentially last up to six hours before the temperature rises enough to change it to rain on Tuesday afternoon. The weather agency also expects winds to gust to 70 km/h on Tuesday.

The Colorado low prompting the messy mix should move out on Wednesday.
