We are gearing up for a wild weather ride over the next few days.

Above normal temperatures and rain yesterday, today and into tomorrow has triggered a Flood Watch for the entire Grand River watershed.

The Grand River Conservation Authority says river levels will be higher until the temperature drops off overnight and into tomorrow.

It says minor flooding is possible in low-lying areas typically prone to flooding.

Ice jams are also possible, especially in West Montrose, Grand Valley and Cayuga.

Meantime, we are keeping an eye on an approaching winter storm.

Freezing rain is possible tonight and then snow.

570 NEWS Weather Specialist John Wilson says there a chance of 10 centemetres of snow and possibly as much as 15 centimetres before it tapers off Saturday.

He says we are also in for sharply colder temperatures with a high today of 8, but only minus 10 or minus 11 on the weekend.
