PHOTOS: Slow-moving storms drench parts of Ontario for second day in a row

Wednesday, August 17th 2022, 4:35 pm - Isolated storms snuck up on parts of southern Ontario for the second straight day Wednesday, thanks to lake-breeze boundaries and an unstable air mass bringing heavy amounts of rain locally.

It was a very wet Wednesday afternoon as severe thunderstorms blanketed parts of southern Ontario for the second day in a row.

A slow moving system snuck up on parts of the region, dumping heavy amounts of rain on the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). These storms came after Tuesday's thunderstorms that brought heavy rain and frequent lightning to the province.

While some areas saw heavy downpours and small hail, other places didn't get much rain at all on Wednesday. The trigger for these isolated storms were an unstable air mass due to lake-breeze boundaries in place.
