Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 7:13 AM - Wondering what you missed overnight or what you can expect for the day ahead? 

Here's your weather briefing for Wednesday, June 11. 

1. No need to water the gardens in Ontario

Rain showers began to move into southwestern Ontario Tuesday night, reaching the Greater Toronto Area by the early morning hours.

"Rain will continue for the morning and afternoon hours with a clearing expected late afternoon/evening," says Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg. "Rain moves back in with the passing cold front overnight into Thursday."

Up to 40 mm of rain is expected in southern Ontario through Thursday, with locally higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

A rainfall warning is in place for parts of eastern Ontario with up to 70 mm expected from this event.

"Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads," warns Environment Canada.

2. Significant rainfall in Quebec

The same system bringing heavy rain to Ontario will slowly move northeastward and will begin to affect southern Quebec late Wednesday.

"Thunderstorms could be intense and give torrential rainfall amounts locally through Saturday, but give minimal amounts elsewhere," says EC.

Over 50 mm of rain is expected over the course of the next three days.

3. Temps stay cool in Newfoundland

After fog and drizzle persisted for much of the day on Tuesday, showers will continue in parts of Newfoundland Wednesday.

"As the trough begins to depart, it will bring showers to the Avalon and most of Newfoundland today," says Sonnenburg. "Northerly winds still keeping St. John's cool and below seasonal."

A frost advisory was issued for parts of the province for early Thursday morning.

4. Thunderstorm risk continues in the Prairies

A low pressure system that's been impacting the Prairies will begin to weaken as the low departs Wednesday.

The threat for thunderstorms continues across parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan with isolated severe storms possible along the border.

"A new developing low Thursday into Friday will bring a wet couple of days for southern Alberta and Saskatchewan," says Sonnenburg.
