The first day of summer may have been filled with sunshine and clear skies, but the second day has brought heavy amounts of rain to parts of Ontario.
A low pressure system from the United States is sweeping across the province, bringing wet and dreary conditions to some regions. There have also been some embedded thunderstorms.
“We saw some big cells earlier today, particularly around Windsor and Sarnia,” says Mark Robinson, a meteorologist here at The Weather Network. “For most people though, this has mainly been a rain event.”
The system is now pushing east, and conditions are clearing behind it.
Today's weather is quite a contrast to yesterday, when the skies were clear, the sun was shining and temperatures were soaring. The humidity is still in place, and will stick around through the day tomorrow.
According to Robinson, that humidity could help trigger some thunderstorms.
“The best chance for some active weather will be in the early afternoon hours,” he says. “The southwestern part of the province could see some severe storms firing up.”
