A special weather statement is in effect for:

Environment Canada says mild temperatures and potentially heavy rain are expected Thursday into Thursday night.

Periods of rain, heavy at times, are forecast to begin Thursday morning. Rainfall amounts in the 15 to 25 mm range are expected by late Thursday evening. A few isolated thunderstorms are also possible Thursday afternoon.

The heavy rain will combine with mild temperatures near 7 degrees Celsius to produce potentially significant snowmelt and localized ponding on streets and other low lying areas.
