Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory as the region gets hit with freezing drizzle this afternoon (Wednesday).

The agency said temperatures will rise above zero and the precipitation will change to rain or drizzle.

Like all freezing rain events, impacts to the region will be varied.

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for London-Middlesex, Elgin County, and Oxford County. A day after temperatures climbed into the 60s, a storm will bring freezing rain, ice, and sleet to MA starting Wednesday night.

Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition: An Orange-Licious Birthday
You could say that the special edition is for fans who feel like they have been friends with the Miata forever. Just 3000 of the 30th Anniversary Miata will be sold worldwide, with only 500 coming to the United States.

"It doesn't warm up much, but a couple degrees will take away what freezing rain is there", he said.

In the wake of this weather system, strong westerly winds with gusts in the 70 to 90 km/h range may be possible Thursday night into Friday.

The Wednesday morning and evening commutes will likely be affected due to accumulating ice pellets and the potential for untreated surfaces to become icy.

We also saw thunderstorms move across the southeast Tri-States this afternoon already. Temperature rising to 4 C by morning.
