Winter just isn't ready to let us out of it's grip.

A system carrying freezing rain and snow is passing through southern Ontario.

It is now well east of Toronto. The GTA is no longer under a freezing rain warning. 

Most of the freezing rain tracked south of us through the Niagara region.

There is still a snowfall warning in place for the Barrie and Collingwood areas that were expecting up to 15 cm.

Roads are still a bit slick in Toronto and snow-covered up north.

      @john "Global warming" is an unfortunate misnomer. A better, more accurate, term would be "climate change". We're going to be seeing more and more extremes in the weather as time goes on. People as a whole are short-sighted. Dangerously so.

      @Angry Bill People still confuse weather with climate making discussions somewhat difficult. Apples...oranges.

      However global warming will be measured in centuries and the first symptom will be a shift in the wind patterns, something that has been happening for about 20 years...this year the winds brought Arctic air further south, the southwest is experiencing the drought that Texas felt two years ago...Florida has been experiencing severe cold this year after two years of high temperatures and drought, yet in Canada we're seeing melting permafrost and the growing season has moved 150 miles north.

      Just a long way of saying that this year we're experiencing a change in the weather, however, global warming is evolving slowly...it may actually result in another ice age and causing central North America to become a desert.
