A special weather statement from Environment Canada says southern Ontario will get a significant amount of rain Thursday and Friday night, starting as freezing rain.

The freezing rain will be a problem for areas lying north of Hwy. 401 in Essex and Kent counties.

General rainfall amounts between 15 mm (0.5 in) and 25 mm (0.9 in) could fall in Chatham-Kent and Windsor-Essex, however, isolated thunderstorms could mean higher amounts.
