Significant rainfall expected for GTA

Freezing rain is possible for the northern GTA on Friday


An April storm is bringing showers and possible freezing rain on Friday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto, the GTA and much of southwestern Ontario.

The agency says we could get between 15-25 mm of rain starting after 12 p.m.

For areas of the northern GTA to Kitchener, there's a chance of freezing rain, but warnings aren't anticipated.

The GTA could also have a thunderstorm Friday afternoon.

Winter-like conditions are sticking around for regions north and northwest of Lake Superior where snow is expected to continue. Total snowfall amounts are expected to remain below the warning threshold of 15 cm per 12 hours.
