Niagara sitting under a special weather statement

A "significant early April rainfall" has Environment Canada issuing a special weather statement for Niagara.

A large and moisture laden Texas low is forecast to track towards the Great Lakes today, crossing Lake Huron and Georgian Bay into Central Ontario on Tuesday.

Rain is expected to move in early Monday evening then continue through Tuesday, resulting in a wet, dull and dreary day.

Total rainfall amounts of 20 to 30 millimetres are likely with this early spring weather disturbance.

The rain will come to an end on Tuesday night as the low pressure are moves away into Quebec.

These rainfall amounts are below the criterion of 50 mm rain in 24 hours required for a rainfall warning.
