By Sunday morning, parts of the province had recorded over 60 mm of rain. It was part of the same system that soaked southern Ontario Friday.

Ste-Foy recorded 63 mm, Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport recorded 57 mm, and CFB Valcartier reported 59 mm. Upriver, Maskinonge and Charette both got around 50 mm, while Ste-Ursule saw 47 mm and Beaceville got 45 mm.

The city of Montreal got 22 mm over the weekend, but the city was not included in the numerous rainfall warnings issued for the St. Lawrence River valley on Saturday.

By Sunday afternoon, the system was tapering off and most places were just seeing light drizzle. 
This latest bout of wet weather comes just days after powerful storms rocked southern Quebec, causing flash flooding in downtown Montreal.

Now, the storm is targeting Atlantic Canada where it's set to bring heavy rain over the next couple of days.
