Accumulations of ice could be larger in the higher elevations, which would be crippling, and lead to many tree limbs and power lines coming down, especially into Wyoming County and the Bristol.

By Sunday evening, as the temperature rises to about 2 C, flooding "may become a threat" in some areas, Environment Canada says.

There is a growing threat of freezing rain Saturday, Saturday night and into early Sunday.

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

Power outages and tree damage are likely because of the ice.

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


Toronto's Pearson Airport advised passengers to check their flight status before leaving, with hundreds of flight cancellations and delays being reported by Saturday afternoon.

A slow-moving storm system, now in southeastern Nebraska, is expected to bring a variety of wintry weather to MI through Monday.

"It's a lot of freezing rain, no question about it", said Kimbell.

The rain and pellets will end for a few hours the evening of April 14, before returning later that night and persisting into April 15.

Hydro One says it has crews ready to respond to outages 24/7, and additional resources are on standby this weekend.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 5 p.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday in the Southern Tier where total ice accumulations of a tenth of an inch to a quarter inch are expected.
