Between 5 and 15 millimetres of rain is expected across southern Ontario by Saturday. And even more in the Niagara area. 25 millimetres is forecast to fall there.
The weekend is expected to be a soggy one, which is forcing Kawartha and Grand River Conservation Authorities to keep a close eye on water levels.
The milder daytime highs throughout the week have also had a hand in triggering snowmelt throughout the watersheds. As a result, several rivers and stream levels have risen. Authorities say the waters will continue to rise throughout the weekend, but no flooding is expected with the current forecast conditions.
As March Break begins, parents are reminded to keep their children away from the softened riverbanks and rushing water.
Meanwhile, it was the winds over Lake Ontario that had people talking Friday. They even had the adventurous... surfing!
A few people were caught paddling in the lake looking to catch a wave. Most of them were dressed in wet suits though, as the lake was just a degree above freezing today.
