Special Weather Statement issued in Hamilton this Easter weekend

It will be a soggy, wet Easter weekend in Hamilton with a special weather statement warning us of lots of rain on the way.

Environment Canada says total rainfall amounts of 25 to 50 millimetres are likely Good Friday and Saturday as a series of low pressure systems moves into the region.

Although the ground is generally no longer frozen, it will still have a limited ability to absorb this rainfall and as  a result, some ponding of water is possible in low-lying areas.

At this point it looks like the rain will end in time for the Easter Bunny's journey on Sunday morning.
