Statements

4:57 AM EDT Saturday 20 April 2019
Special weather statement in effect for:

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

Significant rainfall continues today.

Periods of rain will become heavier once again early this morning. Additional rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 mm are possible by this evening. The higher rainfall amounts are expected over Southwestern Ontario. Rain will taper off to drizzle this evening.

Although the ground is generally no longer frozen, it will still have a limited ability to absorb this rainfall. As a result, some ponding of water is possible in low-lying areas.

The rainfall warning criterion of 50 millimetres of rain within 24 hours is not expected to be reached.

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.
