Orillia | by Ian MacLennan  

Risk of ponding on roads, flooding of low-lying areas.

A brief fling with spring that will be accompanied by a soaking rain.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement about potentially heavy rain today and tonight.

On average, 15-25 mm of rain is expected by Friday morning.

There is also a chance of some thunderstorms.

Heavy rain combined with a high of 8 degrees could result in significant snowmelt, along with localized poinding on roads,  flooding of low-lying areas.

Children and pets need to be kept well back of fast flowing rivers and streams,  and banks will be slippery.

The temperature will hover at or just below freezing by the weekend.
