Today Could Be The Soggiest Day Of The Summer In Southern Ontario So Far

Environment Canada has issued 32 weather alerts today.

You might want to stay inside today and curl up with a good book because Southern Ontario's weather forecast is not looking pretty.

Environment Canada has issued 32 special weather statements in the region, calling for thunderstorms and heavy rainfall throughout the day. Almost every region will be impacted, from Windsor-Essex to Ottawa to Algonquin and everywhere in between.

"Some of these showers and thunderstorms will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm," Environment Canada said in the weather statements.

"Isolated amounts exceeding 50 mm will also be possible in some locations," the statement said. Rainfall warnings have been issued for Parry-Sound Muskoka and Grey-Bruce, where heavy downpours could lead to flash floods and pooling on roads.

The Weather Network pointed out that on this day in 2013, Toronto and the GTA were hit with 126 millimetres of rain, leading to some seriously intense flooding.

The outlet reports that this "soggy and unsettled" weather pattern will persist throughout the week, and predicts that the rest of this month will bring "above normal" temperatures and more stormy weather to the province.
