September 11, 2010 — The heavy rains that pelted Manitoba on Friday swept into northwestern Ontario earlier this weekend. The wet weather will hit southern and eastern Ontario next.

Don't be surprised if you see some ominous clouds form.

Take your rain boots out of the closet, because you might be needing them this weekend.

The same low pressure system that dumped a boatload of rain on Manitoba on Friday moved into northwestern Ontario. In fact, some parts of the province had seen a substantial amount of rain by late Saturday morning, including Fort Francis with 42 mm and Kenora with 31 mm.

A thicker cloud deck moved into southwestern portions of the province on Saturday evening, bringing a risk of thundershowers to areas including Windsor.

Unsettled conditions are expected to sweep through eastern Ontario on Sunday.

In the overnight hours, the system will track across the Lower Great Lakes Region, bringing widespread showers throughout. Five to 10 mm of rain is expected to fall Toronto, but this will likely happen by the morning hours so it won't have much of an impact on the Toronto International Film Festival.

By Sunday, there will be gradual clearing throughout the day, but the rain will push into eastern Ontario, bringing unsettled conditions. Although temperatures plummeted to the low single digits for places like Muskoka early Saturday morning, temperatures are expected to hover around the seasonal mark for the weekend.
