Environment Canada issued a range of warnings and advisories for various parts of the province from York and Durham regions all the way east to Prescott-Russell, Ottawa and up to Algonquin.

Freezing rain warnings were issued for seven areas, including Peterborough-Kawartha Lakes and Stirling-Tweed-South Frontenac.
