We’re expecting solid rainfall in the region over the next 24 hrs. Mixed with melting snow and previous rainfall, ponding and flooding is possible in some areas.
Environment Canada: special weather statement in effect for:
Barrie – Collingwood – Hillsdale
Midland – Coldwater – Orr Lake
Orillia – Lagoon City – Washago
Rain is expected to spread across southern Ontario from west to east tonight and taper off on Wednesday. Although rainfall amounts are not expected to be overly significant, the ground has a reduced ability to absorb further rainfall due to recent rains and snowmelt.
General rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 millimetres are likely, though isolated spots may see higher amounts, especially in areas that receive thunderstorms.
Caution is advised near creeks and rivers where stream flow is expected to increase. Ponding of water may occur in some areas as well.
