Parts of southern and southwestern Ontario saw variable amounts of rain on Sunday. In some areas of the province, the rain came down in heavy downpours. In other parts, the rain was more scattered. Pearson International Airport recorded 16 mm, whereas Hamilton only saw small traces of rain.
Officers were called to various locations in the Greater Toronto Area for stalled vehicles and accidents, says Staff Sgt. Anne Macdonald from Toronto Police. There was some flooding reported on a section of Gardiner Expressway, as well.
Macdonald warns drivers of hydroplaning issues. She says drivers should adjust to weather and road conditions and make sure that the vehicle’s tires are properly inflated.
Some parts of the affected areas saw a number of intense thunderstorms. One such storm sparked a tornado warning for Elgin County. There was no reported damage. The town only saw heavy rains.
The system that affected Ontario has moved eastwards to the Maritimes, but the chance for isolated non-severe thunderstorms will continue on Tuesday.
