Rain began falling in parts of southern Ontario last Thursday prompting Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for a widespread area.

The bulk of the rain however, fell through the day on Friday and into Saturday with some places reporting close to 90 mm.

Toronto's Pearson International Airport picked up 38 mm, while Toronto Island received closer to 60 mm.

The onset of wet weather triggered a flood watch by Toronto and Region Conservation. It was cancelled on Saturday, but officials warn that rivers and streams may continue to flow at higher than normal levels and residents should exercise caution around waterways.

Especially with more rain in the forecast.

"The region will experience a brief break from the rain on Monday, but another system pushing in is expected to bring more rain starting as early as Monday night," says Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
