Just when southern Ontario thought the worst was over, Mother Nature has something else up her sleeve.

Yes, it appears an ice storm is heading towards Canada's most populated region on Wednesday morning.

Precipitation is expected to arrive in the form of freezing rain towards dawn over southwestern Ontario and spread northeastwards through the morning.

In a special weather statement, Environment Canada says the freezing rain could last for hours in some areas and pose hazardous driving conditions with as much as two to five millimetres of ice accumulation possible.

"A freezing rain warning will likely be issued later today as the affected regions become more clear," the statement says.
