==weather event discussion==

A low pressure system that tracked from the southern plains states to
the lower Great Lakes regions brought Plenty of moisture from the
gulf of Mexico to southern, south-central, and Eastern Ontario
beginning on Friday and lasting into this morning. Rainfall warnings
were issued for much of Southern Ontario, with most locations
exceeding the warning criteria of 25 millimetres of rain within a 24
hour period. In fact, several stations reported in excess of 40
millimetres east of Toronto and north of Lake Ontario.

Precipitation was mainly in the form of rain south and east of a
Line from Wiarton to Renfrew before it changed over to snow in the
evening hours over Southwestern Ontario and overnight over Eastern
Ontario. A very brief period of freezing rain also occurred during
the transition from rain to snow.

Regions from grey Bruce to Algonquin received mainly snow at times
heavy throughout the period. The following table is a preliminary
estimate of rainfall and snowfall associated with the system as of
10 PM today.

We live at the top of a hill and the rain was flowing down the street like a river. Then there were ice crystals/freezing rain in between the rain and wet snow. It was very hard to shovel (as it was heavy snow with a layer of granular ice crystals underneath) and then it all froze! Even though I live in town some of the roads were still in very poor shape today. It is suppose to warm up later this week (fingers crossed).
