Sunday brought another soaking for northern Ontario, as severe storms rolled in from the northwest through the Nickel Belt and into the province's Cottage Country.

"We've had reports of very heavy rain in localized areas, amounts exceeding 70 mm in a very short period," Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, said Sunday afternoon.

The strongest of Saturday's storms were in northwestern Ontario, beginning Friday night but peaking over Saturday night, when most of the rain fell.

On Sunday, communities along Lake Huron and parts of central Ontario were under severe thunderstorm watches and warnings, as the storms moved in.

It's a taste of things to come for the south of the province, which has strong storms in store for Monday, with the first rains reaching the Greater Toronto area beginning in the late evening and overnight.

Monday is looking rainy for much of southern Ontario, with potentially severe storms reaching even into Quebec and Montreal.
