Heavy freezing rain warning in effect for April 3-4

April 3, 2018

Weather Forecast:

Environment and Climate Change Canada is forecasting 10-20 mm of freezing rain later this evening. The freezing rain may continue for several hours into Wednesday morning before turning into rain.

Environmental Conditions:

Water levels are slightly above normal across the jurisdiction, but are currently receding to normal levels.

Risks:

The forecasted weather is likely to produce high water levels and possible nuisance flooding in low-lying areas across the jurisdiction.

ACTION:

Residents are advised to exercise caution when near rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows and cause slippery river banks. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

Duration:

This statement is in effect until Friday, April 6, 2018.

SNC monitors the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.
