Environment Canada says that we will see taste of wet fall weather this weekend with an unseasonably cool wind-driven rain affecting the area.

A low pressure system arriving Saturday from the American Midwest will spread rain across Southern Ontario from west to east through the day.   An isolated thunderstorm may accompany the rain on Saturday over Southwestern Ontario near Lake Erie.

Latest indications suggest a soaking rainfall across most of the area from this unseasonably strong low pressure which will track just south of the Lower Great Lakes into the Northeastern United States by Sunday night. This is a track that is quite uncommon during the summer in the Great Lakes area.

Regions from Windsor to the Golden Horseshoe will likely receive copious amounts of rain totalling 30 to 60 millimetres. Rainfall warnings may be required. Lesser amounts, in the 20 to 40 millimetre range, are expected over Central and Eastern Ontario. Areas farther north, to the northeast of Georgian Bay, should receive even less rain as they will be near the northern edge of this weather system.

Additionally, strong northeasterly winds are expected to develop Saturday with gusts generally in the 50 to 70 km/h range with the strongest winds along the Lower Great Lakes.

Latest indications suggest the rain will come to an end beginning Sunday afternoon over Southwestern Ontario.
