A special weather statement in effect for:

  • City of Hamilton
  • Niagara Falls
  • Welland
  • Southern Niagara Region
  • St. Catharines
  • Grimsby
  • Northern Niagara Region

There is significant rainfall expected today in a lot of parts of southern Ontario.

Rain will be heavy at times with amounts of 15 to 25 mm. Localized ponding in poorly drained areas.

Rain is heavy at times beginning this afternoon then changing to snow near midnight.

Light showers and drizzle will give way to rain, heavy at times, this afternoon and then change to snow after midnight.

Note that the partially frozen ground may have a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. A few centimetres of snow can be expected by Friday morning.

Considerable uncertainty remains regarding the track of the Colorado low responsible for this rainfall. Should the track of this low change, rainfall amounts could also change.
