Toronto is under a freezing rain warning today

A pickup truck gets stuck in freezing rain at an intersection in Cornwall, Ont., Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory warning for several Stateline counties through 9 a.m. Thursday. "The freezing rain could persist for much of the day before changing to freezing drizzle this evening".

Forecasters did note the chance for spotty freezing rain or drizzle in central and interior parts of MA until 5 or 6 a.m.

Freezing rain in Kansas and Missouri created icy roadways blamed in two separate crashes that killed three people.

The region may be hit with a lighter second round of precipitation late Wednesday and into early Thursday morning, the NWS said.

Although several school buses were cancelled in the Kingston region on Wednesday morning, several school boards in the area asked parents to come pick up their children due to the possibility of freezing rain. The advisory expires at 1 p.m.

A number of universities and colleges have also closed down.

"Our biggest concern is icing into and during the Thursday AM commute", the service said.

Wednesday's high is expected to reach -3°C, although it will feel more like -10°C with the windchill this afternoon.

The freezing drizzle will continue overnight and into Thursday morning. "Please give yourself some extra time, slow down and drive to the conditions of the roadway", Mark Mills, the superintendent of road operations for the City of Toronto, told CP24 on Wednesday afternoon.
