Heavy Rain Expected Monday

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement predicting significant rainfall on Monday.

The weather agency says a disturbance near the gulf coast is forecast to intensify and track toward the lower Great Lakes, passing over Ohio then the lower Great Lakes Monday evening.

Environment Canada is predicting 15-25 mm of rain over much of southern and eastern Ontario,  with the heavier amounts likely closer to Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Rainfall warnings may be issued as the possibility of heavy rainfall becomes more certain.

The special weather statement is in effect for all of southern Ontario.
