Special weather statement in effect for the Quinte region:
There is the potential for heavy rainfall today.
A few rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected today across portions of southern Ontario. The rain should arrive in central and eastern Ontario later this morning or afternoon.
The rain is expected to be periodic in nature with significant breaks from time to time. However, as the air mass will be very moist, torrential downpours giving significant rainfall amounts in relatively short periods of time are possible.
At this point, it appears that many areas will receive between 20 to 40 mm of rain by later tonight. However, areas that get several thunderstorms may receive significantly higher amounts.
Warnings may be required for some areas.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
