Try not to let the wacky weather of the past few days slip you up, because Hamilton is expected to see some freezing rain and ice pellets throughout Monday morning.
After an unusually balmy Sunday that melted a great amount of the city’s lingering snow, temperatures have dropped again on Monday with a high of 2 degrees Celsius and a low of -4 degrees Celsius expected.
Environment Canada says the freezing rain could be mixed with ice pellets at times. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic.https://t.co/8vbrH3xxMS

Environment Canada has issued a warning for the Hamilton area on Monday morning, calling for freezing rain and ice accretion of 2 to 4 millimetres possible and the likelihood of slippery surfaces.
The freezing rain is expected to change into regular rain by Monday afternoon, with a transition into snow and the possibility of a mix of ice pellets anticipated later in the day.
“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become icy and slippery,” reads the warning from Environment Canada. “There may be significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”
