'Early spring storm' expected today through Thursday

Rainfall amounts of 25 to 50 mm are possible by Wednesday evening

Special weather statement in effect for:
    •    City of Hamilton

Early spring storm expected to bring strong winds and rain today and Wednesday. Potential for some wet snow late Wednesday into Thursday.

A Colorado low is expected to begin affecting the region today. Rain, which may be heavy at times, is expected to begin later this morning and continuing through Wednesday. Wednesday night as cooler air pushes in, the rain may mix with or transition over to wet snow which is expected to ease Thursday evening. Rainfall amounts of 25 to 50 mm are possible by Wednesday evening with only trace amounts of wet snow expected at this time.

Very strong easterly winds will develop tonight with gusts possibly exceeding 80 km/h in some locales. The winds will ease on Wednesday.

Power outages will be possible.

Confidence is low as there remains a high degree of uncertainty with the low's track, which will have significant impacts on temperatures, snowfall amounts as well as if and when rain will transition to snow.
