Warnings

10:06 PM EDT Thursday 20 September 2018
Rainfall warning in effect for:

Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls


Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

Rain and possible thunderstorms are expected over northeastern Ontario tonight into Friday. The rain could be heavy at times with amounts near 50 mm expected over the northern portions of the region, north of Chapleau and Timmins. Embedded thunderstorms will likely give torrential rainfall from time to time. As a result, areas that receive several thunderstorms may see even higher amounts.

Although rain and possible thunderstorms will continue on Friday, the bulk of the rain is expected tonight.

Rain will taper to scattered showers Friday evening.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.

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