POSTED: 6:53 PM EST Tuesday 28 February 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
  • St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region

Rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 mm likely tonight.

Although some spotty showers continue to affect portions of Southern Ontario, a more significant area of showers with embedded thunderstorms is expected to move into the region later this evening. Local rainfall amounts are forecast to be in the 15 to 25 mm range. However, higher amounts are possible, especially in areas that receive a few thunderstorms.

Some additional rainfall is also possible on Wednesday.

Heavy downpours can cause localized flooding in low-lying areas, and water pooling on roads. Higher water levels with increased flow in creeks and rivers are also possible.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
