Happy Wednesday, Hamilton. Any morning where the temperatures are creeping up towards the freezing mark is fine by us, and that’s exactly where we are this morning.

Expect things to even (gasp) move above freezing today and later this week. Who knows – we might even see a spring someday.

Hamilton Daystarter, Weather

Today’s high is 3 C. That’s right, plus three. After all the sub-zero temperatures we’ve been enduring, it feels practically balmy.

There’s a 30 per cent chance of flurries early this morning and a light wind coming out of the southwest.

Expect things to clear this evening and fog patches developing overnight with a low of – 5 C.

Environment Canada is forecasting temperatures above freezing and rain for the rest of the week and into Saturday before dipping back down on Sunday.
