Special Weather StatementIssued at 15:40 Monday 19 February 2018
Appreciable rainfall tonight.
A warm front associated with a low pressure area continues to move towards Southwestern Ontario. Rain associated with this front is currently pushing across the region. It should produce 10 to 20 mm of rainfall before it tapers off early this evening. Another round of showers perhaps accompanied by a rumble or two of thunder is likely later tonight into Tuesday. Additional rainfall with this band should not be overly significant.
This is below Environment Canada's criterion for rainfall warning when the ground is frozen.
Ponding of water on roads and possible marginal flooding may be expected in poorly drained areas.
Periodic showers accompanied by record mild temperatures more typical of April are expected again Tuesday and Tuesday night. A cold front will announce an end to the rain on Wednesday. Rainfall from this multi-day event may total 25 to 40 mm.
