Region including: City of Thunder Bay, Municipalities of Neebing, Oliver Paipoonge, Shuniah and the Townships of O’Connor, Conmee, Gilles and Dorion.

The last 36 hours resulted in approximately 40 to 50 milimetres of precipitation in the area.

Yesterday’s afternoon thunderstorm resulted in approximately 6 to 10 millimetres being recorded in area gauges with no precipitation recorded overnight. No rain is forecasted in the next two days, however thunderstorms are possible.

Area watercourses have crested or are expected to crest over the day in response to the recent rainfall. In the City of Thunder Bay the Neebing-Mcintyre Flood way is diverting and will likely continue to divert over the day.

Residents are still reminded to be careful around fast flowing water and unstable banks.
