Prepare for power outages in upcoming winter storm

Freezing rain will possibly hit a large area in the U.S. Midwest, including parts of Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and MI states, the National Weather Service said on Tuesday morning.

A freezing drizzle advisory from Environment Canada remained in effect Wednesday night after sheets of freezing rain and ice pellets swept over the city for much of the day.

Environment Canada says Durham Region is in for some periods of freezing drizzle Thursday.

The spring-like weather in New England is fleeting.

An ice storm Monday hit the Upper Peninsula and now, most of MI is bracing for freezing rain that's expected to leave roads as icy as the U.P.

Many roads, parking lots, and sidewalks are still slippery due to earlier bouts of of freezing rain the past 24 hours.

But by the Thursday morning commute, there could still be pockets of icy roads in the region, and drivers should plan ahead and give themselves extra travel time, he said. So we're also looking at a big drop in temperatures as we head through the evening. Friday will have chance of rain and have a high in the mid-50s.

Forecasters say icy conditions could return Friday night as the rain ends and cold westerly winds bring scattered flurries.

Temperatures across the Maritimes will fall quickly Friday evening into Saturday morning as Arctic-sourced air returns for the weekend.
