Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement which affects a large portion of Southern Ontario as there is an expectation of some heavy rains in the area.
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Brantford – County of Brant
- City of Hamilton
- Burlington – Oakville
The remnants of Nate likely to affect southern Ontario with some appreciable rain overnight into Monday.
Hurricane Nate came ashore last night in southern Mississippi. The hurricane is now weakening rapidly and travelling north to northeastwards. It is forecast to track just south of the Great Lakes tonight into Monday. However, the rain associated with this weakening system is likely to graze portions of the lower Great Lakes with several hours of rain. It should begin tonight for regions north of Lake Erie and north of Lake Ontario towards dawn or early Monday morning.
Total rainfall amounts of 20 to 30 mm are likely, with locally higher amounts of 40 mm possible. Rainfall warnings are possible for some areas if somewhat heavier rain is expected.
The rain will end from west to east on Monday.
