Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for our listening area that says potentially significant rainfall could fall today through Friday afternoon.

A low pressure system will approach Southern Ontario from the southwest. Rain is forecast to begin this afternoon and end by Friday afternoon. Rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm are possible, with the heaviest rain occurring Thursday evening. Strong northwesterly to westerly wind gusts of 70 km/h are possible Friday morning into Friday afternoon.

If visibility is reduced during driving, turn on headlights and maintain a safe following distance. Remember pedestrians are more difficult to see when it is dark and raining.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada and broadcast on Lake 88.
