WEATHER ALERT

ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE CANADA

*************************
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls

Rain, at times heavy, is expected today into tonight.

Rain ahead of a low pressure system currently over Minnesota began late last night and will fall rather heavy at times today. Total rainfall amounts of 30 to 40 mm are possible. However, some areas may receive amounts near 50 mm by the time the rain ends tonight.

At this time there is some uncertainty in the exact location of the highest rainfall amounts. It appears that the heaviest rain will fall near Lake Superior where a rainfall warning is in effect. However, Environment and Climate Change Canada will closely monitor the situation and issue additional rainfall warnings if necessary.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
