Here's your news, weather and traffic for Monday, June 9.
Here's a look at today's weather. (CBC)

Morning, Hamilton. After a bit of a damp weekend, we should get a bit of a reprieve from the rain, today.

The forecast isn’t calling for precipitation today – but expect more on the way for the rest of the week.

If you’re looking to get gas this morning, the cheapest price listed in the area is 130.9 at Pioneer in Flamborough at 1489 Hwy 6 near Carlisle Road.

The Union Station 7:13 a.m. to Aldershot 8:16 a.m. GO train is delayed by just over six minutes today. Expect some delays driving into Toronto because of construction on the Gardiner Expressway.

Here are the issues police are reporting:

  • Hwy 403 EB at Aberdeen Ave: 2 vehicle collision on the left shoulder, no injuries. 7:30 a.m.

Expect a mix of sun and cloud today, with a high of 23 C except 19 C near Lake Ontario. UV index 9 or very high.

Partly cloudy tonight, but clearing after midnight. Low 12 C.

Expect cloudiness on Tuesday, with a few showers beginning late in the evening, and winds becoming east 30 km/h late in the afternoon. High 25 C except 20 along the lake.

The forecast is calling for rain until Friday.

Election day is quickly approaching for Ontario, and CBC Hamilton wants you to make an informed decision when you vote.

That’s why we’re hosting a series of live video chats in your ridings leading up to June 12. Next up is the Hamilton Centre riding on Monday, June 9 at noon. We'll be joined by Green Party candidate Peter Ormond, Liberal candidate Donna Tiqui-Shebib and PC candidate John Vail. NDP leader Andrea Horwath was unable to attend.

Reporter Samantha Craggs will also be reporting from tonight's school board meeting. You can follow along live on Twitter.
