Dangerous Weather Alert in Effect for Mississauga
While we all know it's wet and foggy outside, we might not all realize how hazardous some parts of Mississauga and surrounding areas might be.
The City of Mississauga says that a Level 1 flood outlook is currently in effect.
The watershed conditions statement was released by the Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) on Friday, Feb. 16 and could remain in effect well into the week.
Environment Canada is forecasting above seasonal temperatures and rainfall for the beginning of next week with a possible 20-40 mm by early Wednesday morning.
"The mix of high temperatures, rain, and melting of the remaining snowpack is expected to increase water levels for watercourses throughout the watershed," the city says.
All watercourses in the area will experience higher than normal water levels.
As a result, local streams and rivers may become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams.
The city says that everyone, including children and pets, should be kept away from all watercourses.
