Toronto Weather Is Going To Be A Wet Mess Today & You Should Probably Throw On A Raincoat

It's going to be a soggy start to the week in Toronto and you might want to carry an umbrella with you.

A special weather statement was issued at 5:36 a.m. on October 25 for heavy rain that's expected to pour down all day on the 6ix.

An extra 15 to 30 millimetres of rain is expected to come down, making the total rainfall somewhere between 30 to 50 millimetres. The rainfall is expected to ease up early this evening.

There could be flooding in low-lying areas in the city, and Environment Canada is advising to keep storm drains clear of fallen leaves and other debris when it is safe to do so, to help prevent this from happening.

Toronto isn't the only place that'll be hit with buckets of rain. Other parts across southern Ontario also have special weather statements issued, with areas in the southernmost part of the province getting hit the hardest.

A mystery Toronto family showed up for its fellow residents during yesterday's snowstorm, bringing hot coffee and food to passengers in stranded buses.

Sage W. told Narcity that she boarded the 996 Express bus towards York Mills station at 1:15 p.m. on January 17 to visit her boyfriend, and she remained on the bus until 7:20 p.m. when the driver told passengers they would be better off walking to their destinations.

According to Alex Li, police spokesperson and media relations for the Toronto Police, officers responded to approximately 250 weather-related calls in the span of 24 hours, dealing with a long list of accidents, including personal injury collisions, property damage collisions, hazards, and more.

If you're a Toronto resident who tends to not shovel snow off your property for days at a time, you might want to check yourself before you get fined.

According to the City of Toronto, residents are required to clear ice and snow from sidewalks in front of or adjacent to their homes to help keep their neighbours and community safe.
