Southwestern Ontario was/is being impacted by heavy freezing rain this afternoon. Areas of southern Ontario have been dealing with a mix of snow/sleet/freezing rain and rain theoughout the day. While we often talk about road conditions during such events, sometimes the weather takes a toll on the road cameras too! Below are from Ontario 511 road cameras.
