The higher rainfall amounts are expected in an area from near Sault Ste. Marie and northeast towards Kirkland Lake.
Rain is expected to end near Sault Ste. Marie this afternoon and near the Quebec border this evening.
As of early this morning, rainfall amounts ranging between 20 and 50 mm have been reported. By the time the rain comes to an end today, total rainfall amounts of 35 to 70 mm are likely.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Don’t approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts. Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.
