Summary

Significant rainfall into Wednesday. Several rounds of rain are forecast beginning this evening. Rainfall amounts of 10 to 20 mm are likely by Tuesday morning. This is below Environment Canada's criterion for rainfall warning when the ground is frozen. However, this rainfall along with snowmelt due to very mild temperatures may result in ponding of water in poorly drained areas. Occasional showers are expected Tuesday and Tuesday night along with record-breaking temperatures more typical of April. This wet, record mild spell is attributed to a series of low pressure systems moving along a warm front draped across the lower Great Lakes. A final band of rain is likely along a cold front on Wednesday, bringing the rain to an end. However, multi-day rainfall totals in the 20 to 30 mm range are likely in some areas. ### Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
