Over 50mm of rain (almost 2 inches) fell in Sarnia over the weekend.

Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson says there were pretty significant amounts of rain right across southwest Ontario both Saturday and Sunday.

Up until Saturday, May was a very dry month with only 26mm of precipitation compared to 80mm normally.

Coulson says looking ahead, we appear to be headed to another drier than normal period.

Windsor received close to 74mm or almost three inches of rain.
