Rain, Snow Melt Could Cause Flooding in Parts of Ontario

Kasia Bodurka, reporter

January 29, 2013 - Snow followed by heavy rain has experts warning homeowners of the potential for flooding across southern Ontario this week.

Typically a snow melt occurs in spring, but with the right combination of weather events it can happen in the winter season as well.

"These systems that Ontario are dealing with this week are definitely the kind that promote flooding," says Mark Robinson, a meteorologist at The Weather network. "When you see a lot of snow on the ground, it's not melting right away, and right behind it you got a ton of rain coming in, you're going to have some serious flooding issues because everything will melt all at once. So, you're almost getting a couple of days worth of rain in one day when everything melts."

A series of moisture packed systems hitting Ontario, have brought everything from snow, to freezing rain, dense fog and heavy rain.
