Ontario's Weather Forecast Is Predicting Flooding Today As Storm Hits Province

Bust out your umbrellas! Ontario's weather forecast has put several northern regions on flood watch today due to an incoming storm and a stretch of torrential rain.

According to The Weather Network, areas like Thunder Bay will receive as much as 50 millimetres of rain by Thursday evening with a possibility for flooding in "low-lying areas."

"A slow moving area of low pressure over the central United States will bring an extended period of rain to parts of northern Ontario," Environment Canada warns. "The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall."

Thankfully, the showers will have mostly disappeared by the weekend.

Meanwhile, southern regions will be remarkably sunny and warm this week with daytime temperatures reaching as high as 14 C on Wednesday in Toront.
