A Colorado low is forecast to cross the lower Great Lakes on Monday.

Precipitation will begin in the form of rain across Southern Ontario before the morning commute.

Areas such as Peterborough will change to freezing rain quickly, while northeastern Ontario will see snow.

Freezing rain will spread as the day progresses. Several millimetres of ice accumulation is possible before it changes to rain in the overnight hours.

Southern Quebec will also see some impacts from the storm.

Snow will move into Southern Quebec on Monday and will change to freezing rain on Monday evening. Freezing rain will continue on Tuesday. A total of 5 to 10 millimetres of freezing rain is expected.

Areas east of the Drummondville area will see snow change to rain.
