Hamilton DayStarter: Everything you need to know Tuesday
It's a chilly morning in Hamilton today. Just 3 C for your walk to work. Bundle up – we won't even see double-digit temperatures (I guess that means winter is on its way... well it is almost November!).
If you're interested in the future of CBC Radio, we invite you to join CBC tomorrow (Oct. 23) for the Annual Public Meeting from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. CBC journalists, including Metro Morning's Matt Galloway and The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti will be part of a panel discussion and conversation about changes in radio broadcasting. The panel is live at Glen Gould Studio at the CBC Broadcasting centre in Toronto. If you can make it in person, visit cbc.ca/toronto to register for a seat in the theatre or you can log in online from work or home to watch the live stream.
No issues to report on HSR or GO Transit this morning, or on local roads as of 8:00 a.m.
On the QEW Fort Erie-bound just east of Trafalgar, OPP is reporting the middle lane is blocked after a collision. 7:47 a.m.
For folks using King Street East for your commute, you may notice the transit-only lane that was expected to be in service this morning is not yet ready to go. The City of Hamilton tweeted earlier today the rain overnight prevented crews from completing the job. Those crews will try again tonight, and if it goes as planned, the bus lane will be in service tomorrow morning.
Here's an on-going map of construction around the city to note for your commute.
Jacket, scarf and gloves. That's what needed this morning to keep warm on the way to work and school. Just 3 C at 8:00 a.m., going up to a high of 9 C later on.
Overnight, a 40 per cent chance of showers and a low of 4 C.
Showers are also expected Wednesday morning and a high of just 8 C. Time to layer up!
At the court house this morning, Dellen Millard and Mark Smitch, both accused of murder in the death of Hamiltonian Tim Bosma, will appear for a pre-trial hearing. You can follow reporter Julia Chapman on Twitter (@JkChapsCBC) for live updates from the courtroom.
At city hall, the Pan Am Subcommittee is meeting to give an update on Scott Park-area community centre and seniors' complex. Follow our city hall reporter Samantha Craggs on Twitter (@SamCraggsCBC) for updates from the meeting.
For all the days top stories give the CBC's AM Express a listen, hosted by World Report's David Common.

A crazy scene in Taiwan captured on a dash cam. The driver of the white car must be counting his blessings after a close call on the road... with a massive boulder. Pay attention to the top of the frame in the first four seconds to watch the boulder break off.
