That nice weather; that couple of days that were livable – they were just a week ago weren’t they?

The blistering heat on Wednesday was unrelenting – late in the afternoon there were some magnificent cloud formations which foretold of a weather system developing.


This is where the weather comes from.

Then sure as Thursday follows Wednesday Conservation Halton tells us that the Environmental people tell them that we are in for some heavy rain.

Here’s the word from Conservation Halton:

Environment Canada has issued a thunderstorm watch for areas including Halton Hills, Milton, Burlington and Oakville. Local forecasts are predicting additional rainfall overnight and throughout Thursday morning. The additional rainfall combined with previous amounts totaling up to 35 mm in some areas may result in higher than normal water levels and flows in local streams and flooding of low lying areas.

Conservation Halton is asking all residents and children to stay away from watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams. Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks make these locations extremely dangerous. Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.

Conservation Halton will continue to monitor stream and weather conditions and will issue further messages as necessary.

Conservation Halton will issue an update to this Watershed Condition Statement – Water Safety Statement only if significant changes in the forecasts occur. This Watershed Condition Statement will be in effect through Thursday September 8, 2016.

There you have it – wet on Thursday. Careful in the traffic for those of you who are driving.
