Spring showers are coming our way this weekend. Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement and the Toronto forecast is showing some nasty conditions ahead.

According to the statement, areas across the GTA will be hit with freezing rain and powerful winds throughout Saturday.

“A risk of freezing rain is possible early Saturday morning, which will rapidly transition to rain Saturday morning as temperatures quickly rise above zero,” says Environment Canada.

Those planning to travel on Saturday morning may have their plans affected.

Along with the rain, powerful wind gusts of 70 or 80 km/h are also expected on Saturday and into Saturday night.

“Given the forecast of these strong winds, local power outages are possible.”
