Temperatures were expected to eventually rise above zero changing the precipitation to occasional drizzle.

The national weather agency is urging drivers to be cautious on the roads and has issued a special weather statement for several parts of Southwestern Ontario including Norfolk, Haldimand and Brant counties.

While mild and rainy conditions are expected over much of southern Ontario Thursday and into Friday, colder weather is on the way.

A general rainfall of 10 to 20 millimetres appears likely, although some areas may see higher amounts.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. The front will reach the eastern shore of Lake Superior early this evening and track eastward through the night reaching the North Bay area a few hours before dawn. "There may also be brief freezing rain during the changeover".

However, a very strong cold front will cross the area Thursday afternoon changing the rain to snow with a threat for freezing rain.

Flash freeze warnings are issued when a rapid drop in temperature is expected, that can cause water from rain or melted snow on streets and sidewalks to quickly freeze.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous.
