Some Ontarians in for a rainy good Friday
Friday, April 18, 2014, 8:24 AM -
If you're hoping for a sunny Easter weekend, you may have to wait until Saturday.
In southern Ontario, any Friday Easter egg hunts may have to go on amid some showers, starting in the afternoon and going on until the evening.
It's not exactly a major rain event for most areas however, though up to 10 mm could fall along a line stretching from Barrie to the northeast.
Temperatures will reach reach highs in the low mid-teens on Friday, and if your community does get some rain Friday, take heart: It looks sunny and clear for the rest of the long weekend.

"With recovering temperatures and a mix of sun and cloud in store, this could be the best day of the weekend," Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani writes in her updated Easter outlook. "Southern Quebec can expect the same, but don’t rule out some brief showers in the early morning hours."
In the north, however, it's a different story.
While parts of the region will be sunny and clear Friday, a system moving in from the Prairie provinces will bring yet another blast of winter to a region that must already feel like spring passed it by.
The snow starts Friday night in border areas, moving over the rest of the region by Saturday.
No snowfall warnings are currently in effect, but a special weather statement has been issued for much of the north by Environment Canada.
