A slow moving area of low pressure over the central United States will bring an extended period of rain to parts of Western Ontario.
The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall, so there is the potential for localized flooding in low-lying areas.
Rain, at times heavy, is expected Wednesday through Thursday.
What: Rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm by Thursday morning.
Where: Portions of northwestern Ontario and north of Lake Superior.
The rain is expected to begin Wednesday morning to early afternoon and continue into Thursday evening.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. For information concerning flooding, please consult your local Conservation Authority or Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry District office. Visit Ontario.ca/floods for the latest details.
