Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for much of Southern Ontario, including all of the Golden Horseshoe, due to some potential heavy rainfall combining with snowmelt to create ponding issues in streets and low lying areas.
The Statement reads:
“Isolated thunderstorms possible this afternoon into this evening.
Several rounds of showers will move through the area this afternoon and this evening bringing general rainfall amounts of 10 mm. However embedded isolated thunderstorms may boost local rainfall totals into the 15 to 25 mm range by late this evening.
The ground is still frozen or snow covered, so these local rainfall amounts combined with mild temperatures may cause significant snowmelt or runoff leading to localized ponding on streets and other low lying areas.”
