WEATHER: Niagara under rainfall warning this morning

The freezing rain warning is over for Niagara and the Golden Horseshoe, but a rainfall warning continues across the region.

Hydro crews across Southern Ontario spent the weekend working overtime dealing with thousands of power outages, many from downed power lines and poles.

The mix of snow, freezing rain, ice pellets, rain and powerful winds that battered our area made driving treacherous, with provincial police reporting more than 1,450 crashes over the two days.

But we aren't out of the woods just yet.

Environment Canada's Etienne Gregoire tells us this morning, it's going to be a very wet day.

He says we still have in the range of 15 to 25 mm of rain to come today.

Gregoire adds after the rain tapers off this afternoon, we still may get periods of light snow and flurries with cooler than normal temperatures.
