From rubber boots to sunglasses. That's the transition many residents across Ontario will be making.
An area of low pressure tracked across the province Wednesday, bringing heavy amounts of rain from the Bruce Peninsula to the Ottawa River. Sault Ste. Marie saw over 30mm of rain with this storm and places like Toronto and Markham saw closer to 20mm. Winds were also gusting up to 65km/h at some points.
While it seemed pretty stormy, it didn't last long.
“We've pretty much seen the bulk of the rain,” says The Weather Network's meteorologist Michelle Cassar. “We may see a few isolated showers here and there through the overnight hours, but it's basically done for southern Ontario.”
Cassar says there's still a chance for some non-severe thunderstorms in Ottawa and Montreal during the evening hours, but at most these places will see an additional 5 to 10mm of rain.
Now it's the humidity that will have people talking once again. “An area of high pressure is moving back in bringing a seasonal and fair day for the region on Thursday. The humidity will build in for Friday and it's looking to be a hot and sticky weekend,” explains Cassar.
