Hamilton Daystarter: Everything you need to know Friday
Good morning Hamilton! It’s another slightly chilly morning, so you’ll want to grab a jacket on your way out the door.
The sun is still peaking out in most parts of the city at least, so you can soak up that vitamin D. Enjoy it while it lasts – it’s set to cloud over later this morning.
Just one delay being reported by GO Transit this morning: the 7:13 a.m. from Union Station to Aldershot 8:16 a.m. is backed up by about 10 minutes.
Here are the issues police are reporting:
- QEW Toronto bound at Dorval Dr, Oakville: three vehicle collision blocking the left lane, ambulance at scene. 7:30 a.m.
- A vehicle collision at Cannon Street East and Catherine Street North. 7:11 a.m.
That sun will dip under clouds later this morning, with showers beginning this afternoon. The winds will be coming out of the east 30 km/h gusting to 50 km/h.
Today’s high is 7 C with temperatures falling to 3 C this afternoon.
Showers will end late this evening then it will be partly cloudy with a 40 per cent chance of drizzle. Winds are forecasted as coming out of the northeast 30 km/h becoming light after midnight. Low of 1 C.

A 19-year Hamilton police veteran pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of discreditable conduct for receiving oral sex from a sex worker and then lying that she was an informant when another officer caught him.
The $20 encounter with the woman will cost the officer $40,000 in lost salary.
The RCMP is also investigating after containers of toxic chemicals were discovered at a location in Ancaster, findings that police say are "consistent with a synthetic drug lab."
