WEATHER ALERTS
ENVIRONMENT CANADA
**************************
Special weather statement in effect for:
    •    Guelph - Erin - Southern Wellington County
    •    Kitchener - Cambridge - Region of Waterloo

Potential for heavy rainfall today.

A few rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected today across portions of southern Ontario. The rain is developing over southwestern Ontario early this morning and will advance eastward to reach the Golden Horseshoe after daybreak.

The rain is expected to be periodic in nature with significant breaks from time to time. However, as the air mass will be very moist, torrential downpours giving significant rainfall amounts in relatively short periods of time are likely.

At this point, it appears that many areas will receive between 20 to 40 mm of rain by this evening. However, areas that get several thunderstorms may receive significantly higher amounts.

Warnings may be required for some areas.

**************************
Special weather statement in effect for:
    •    Mount Forest - Arthur - Northern Wellington County

Thirty to 50 mm of rain today.

An area of showers and thunderstorms will move into the region this morning and is expected to persist through the day. Rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm are forecast by this evening with higher local amounts possible under the heaviest showers and thunderstorms.

Rainfall warnings may be required for some areas.

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.
