Special Weather Statement's are in effect across Southern Ontario.

The National Weather Service has issued an Ice Storm Warning from 2pm Saturday to 2pm Sunday for counties including Monroe, Livingston, Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming. Freezing rain is likely to transition to rain midday Sunday.

"However, as the low (pressure system) approaches tonight, freezing rain will likely become widespread again", the weather warning from Environment Canada reads.

Meanwhile north of the GTA and in parts of central and eastern Ontario, snow and ice pellets fell on Saturday morning.

That said, Environment Canada says this "has the potential to be a major ice storm for some regions with ice accumulations in excess of 20 millimetres possible".

An area of rain and isolated thunderstorms is expected to affect extreme southwestern Ontario.

Temperatures are expected to slowly rise through the first half next week, eventually hitting our typical mid-April daily highs of 11 C by Wednesday.

On Saturday, the agency warned the storm could be reminiscent of the 2013 ice storm that blanketed the region and caused wide-spread power outages.

We'll see freezing rain possibly changing to ice pellets this morning, then snow or ice pellets (5 to 10 cm) in the afternoon.

Sunday is when the forecast gets ominously terse: "Periods of snow or freezing rain". Power outages and tree damage are "likely" due to the winds and ice, and travel will be hard at times due to ice-covered surfaces and downed tree limbs and power lines.

It says the wintry weather is expected to continue into Sunday, and will likely lead to risky driving conditions.
