With the city expecting between 20 to 30 mm of rain on Saturday, the day might be best spent decorating for the holidays inside.

With the temperature hovering near zero, some areas should expect freezing rain or freezing drizzle. Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning as localized flooding is possible.

A storm has been working its way through New York state and moved into Quebec Saturday morning, with parts of Ottawa already seeing light drizzle.

The rain will be heaviest in the morning and may turn to snow at times this evening.
