May showers on the way for Niagara with up to 40mm expected to fall

Niagara is bracing for May showers after a fairly dry and warm week.

Rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast starting this afternoon, and continuing into tomorrow.

By the time showers end tomorrow afternoon, Niagara may receive up to 40 mm of rain.

Environment Canada has not issued a Rainfall Warning --  warnings are only issued in the spring when 50 mm of rain is expected to fall within 24 hours.

The good news is that Saturday looks beautiful, sunny with a high of 19.
