Wet, slippery lead-up to Easter weekend

SD&G – Environment Canada is warning residents to expect a slippery and thunderous introduction to the Easter weekend.

The agency issued a special weather statement at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night saying some freezing rain could be expected overnight and into Thursday morning.

We might even hear a few claps of thunder on Thursday afternoon as a warm front ahead of a low pressure system moves across the province toward Quebec.

The thunderstorms may bring up to 25 millimeters of rain, causing possible flooding.

The Raisin Region and South Nation Conversation Authorities have issued cautionary notes about rising water and possible flooding.

South Nation says it’s not concerned about ice jamming on rivers but nuisance flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Raisin Region says water levels are lower than normal for this time of year but there’s still a lot of water-laden snow left to melt.
