The weather system that will hit the Ottawa-Gatineau region on Tuesday afternoon has already made its mark in the U.S.
The storm left several areas under ice, including in Kansas, where this dashcam video shows scary footage a State Trooper swerving to avoid a tractor that jackknifed and slid into oncoming traffic. Luckily, there were no injuries. Icy roads and speeding were the determining factors for the crash.
While the Ottawa-Gatineau region is expected to get more snow than ice, areas to the west including Smiths Falls, Prescott, Brockville and Gananoque are under a Special Weather Statement, as freezing rain is expected in those areas. Areas from Belleville to Windsor are under a Freezing Rain Warning for Tuesday.
