Freezing rain and strong winds were forecast for parts of Canada on January 11 as a severe winter storm approached the area, the Canadian government warned.
Ice buildup of 10 millimeters was possible, with surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous.
Local media reported that heavy rain is expected in areas north of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Freezing rain will affect most areas from east of Lake Huron to eastern Ontario, CHCH added.
