The rains will start off light on April 3, according to Environment Canada’s Mississauga sensors, with an 80 per cent chance of light drizzle from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Temperatures will remain at a brisk 7 degrees throughout the early morning. Meanwhile, winds will be moderate with a 30 km/h steady wind from the east. Gusts at this time may reach peaks of 50 km/h.

However, after 9 a.m. the weather will take a turn for the worse. From then on there will be a 100 per cent chance of full-blown rain. Temperatures will fall throughout the day until they hit a low of 4 degrees by 7 p.m.

During this time, wind will kick up to a steady 40 km/h with gusts hitting up to 60 km/h. The system is caused by an early spring storm which prompted a weather warning from April 2 to April 3.

“A Colorado low is expected to begin affecting the region tonight. Rain, which may be heavy at times, is expected to begin this evening and continue into Wednesday,” Environment Canada wrote, “Rain should transition to snow late Wednesday as temperatures cool, although significant amounts are not expected.”
