Flood fears ease, but caution urged
After absorbing about 36mm of rain Thursday, the skies should be partly cloudy all weekend, with only about a 30 per cent chance of any precipitation. Highs Saturday will reach 10 C, before warming to 14 C Sunday and a balmy 16 C Monday.
Because of the heavy rain Thursday, a flood outlook is still in effect for Greater Sudbury. Elevated water levels should be expected in creeks and rivers, as well as any drainage systems. It's especially important to keep children away from riverbanks or any other water bodies, since the saturated ground makes for slippery and dangerous conditions.
