Hamilton weather, traffic and more: Daystarter Wednesday

Here's your news, weather and traffic for Wednesday, June 25.
Here's a look at today's weather. (CBC)

If you could describe Hamilton’s weather from the last couple of days in one word it would likely be muggy. Or damp. Or something akin to walking in soup. Is there a single word that describes walking in soup?

Regardless, it’s going to be somewhat damp again today, with a 60 per cent chance of showers. Grab that umbrella again. At least it should be sunnier for the rest of the week.

If you’re looking to get gas this morning, the cheapest price listed in the area is 135.9 at the Global at 1294 Hwy 6 and 8th Concession Rd E in Flamborough.

The Union Station 7:13 a.m. to Aldershot GO train is delayed by just over seven minutes this morning. There are no bus delays listed, except for the usual 30 minute or so delay on route 16 heading into Toronto because of construction on the Gardiner Expressway.

Police aren’t yet reporting any major issues on area roads this morning.

Expect mainly cloudy skies with a 60 per cent chance of showers today. Fog patches dissipating late this morning. High 22 C except 18 C near Lake Ontario. UV index 7 or high.

Tonight will see mainly cloudy skies with a 60 per cent chance of showers. Low 16 C.

Expect a mix of sun and cloud tomorrow, with a high of 23 C except 18 C near Lake Ontario.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will be playing in an incomplete stadium for nearly the whole season, as construction is now acknowledged to be more than three months behind schedule.

But officials say none of the a outstanding work will be a "show stopper," and fans will still have a good time. But on opening day, fans at  the new Tim Horton’s Field will have to do so without a scoreboard and the full complement of washrooms.

At city hall today, there's a final vote on protection of police animals and a motion on the health of honey bees. Follow reporter Samantha Craggs on Twitter for updates.
