Rainfall warning in effect for:
Belleville – Quinte West – Eastern Northumberland County
Cobourg – Colborne – Western Northumberland County
Significant rainfall gradually tapering off today…
Rain at times heavy is affecting a good portion of Southern Ontario today. There is still some residual freezing rain near or north of the Oak Ridges Moraine as well as from the northern Kawarthas towards Eastern Ontario. Rainfall amounts in the 20 to 30 mm range are likely by the times it tapers off from west to east today.
Environment Canada’s Jeff Coulson tells us that clearing out around your storm drains…
Extra care should be taken commuting today. Standing water may be potentially hazardous on poorly drained roads and highways due to the weekend ice accumulation.
Coulson says we should see a turn around in the weather by this Thursday…
Please clear drainage basins of ice buildup in urban centres. This will assist in more effective water flow and may prevent basement flooding.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.
