Freezing rain warnings for eastern Ontario, Gatineau
Bad news for the canal ice or snow lovers, it will be mild this weekend
Change is on the way for Friday.
A milder pattern is moving in, with freezing rain and showers expected by afternoon.
There is a freezing rain warning in place for Ottawa-Gatineau, Lanark County, Prescott-Russell and the Cornwall and Brockville areas.
The switch to showers is expected to happen by mid- to late-afternoon.
Look for a high of 1 C — that's plus 1 C for a change.
The wind chill will still be in the minus double digits until mid morning.
Keep your fingers crossed for sunshine this weekend because it will be mild: a high of 2 C on Saturday and 0 C Sunday.
It's bad news for canal ice or snow lovers, but easier to take for other outdoor activities.
