Flood fears ease, but caution urged

 Weather watchers can expect some good news for the Victoria Day long weekend, as the skies are expected to clear and warmer weather is on the way.

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.


 We're a little more than a month away from the longest day of the year. Sunrise on the weekend will be at 5:50 a.m., while the sun will set about 9:50 p.m.

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.
