Environment Canada says rainfall warning continues for Niagara Region

Environment Canada says the significant rainfall we're getting will gradually taper off today.

In the meantime, periods of rain continue. 

Rainfall amounts in the 20 to 30 mm range are likely by the times it tapers off from west to east.

Extra care should be taken commuting today.

Standing water may be potentially hazardous on poorly drained roads and highways due to the weekend ice accumulation.

City officials are reminding residents to clear drainage basins of ice buildup in urban centres. 

This will assist in more effective water flow and may prevent basement flooding.

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority warning of localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
