Environment Canada warns that significant rainfall with isolated thunderstorms expected across the area Wednesday.
An early fall type of low pressure system over Wisconsin will track northeastward across Northern Lake Huron later today then into Northeastern Ontario and Quebec by Thursday morning.
This moisture laden low is expected to drag a fairly sharp cold front across the regions tonight. Most regions will receive total rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm. However a few thunderstorms with very heavy downpours and gusty winds will be possible late today and tonight resulting in local rainfall amounts near 50 mm.
Showers, heavy at times, have already moved into the Windsor to Sarnia areas of Southwestern Ontario. They are expected to reach the Golden Horseshoe to Barrie and Muskoka regions between 4pm and 6pm then continue to spread northeast into remaining districts this evening.
