Rain is falling in most of western Ontario and it is expected to continue throughout Monday before changing to scattered showers on Tuesday. Temperatures have already started to fall and the chill is expected to remain for most of the work week.
Northwestern Ontario around Pickle Lake could see trace amounts of snow as the temperatures hover around zero. The ground is still fairly warm at this time of year so no accumulation is expected.
Southern Ontario could see up to 30 mm of rain Monday. Areas in cottage country and around Lake Huron and Erie will see the most rain with more than 40 mm of rain possible before the system moves out.
Strong winds are accompanying this system with gusts of up to 100 km/h possible for southwestern Ontario around Lake Erie. The rest of the province could see gusts up to 70 km/h. The rain will taper off to showers Monday overnight but the strong winds will continue into Tuesday for most of Ontario.
Eastern Ontario around Kingston and Ottawa woke up to dry but foggy conditions this morning. The rain will begin in the late afternoon and will continue overnight into Tuesday.
The unseasonably warm temperatures experienced across the Prairies and Eastern Canada have come to an end. Over the weekend, temperatures in the Prairies dropped into the teens after breaking heat records last week.
On Saturday, thunderstorms rolled across central and southern Alberta. Hail was reported as well as strong winds with gusts clocked at 80 km/h.
