RAINFALL WARNING
ENVIRONMENT CANADA
*************************
Rainfall warning in effect for:

  • Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale

Significant rainfall tonight.

Following a appreciable freezing rain event, a round of heavy rainfall is expected tonight. The rain may fall heavily at times with amounts likely in the 20 to 25 mm range. Some additional rainfall is likely into Monday, albeit lighter. Total rainfall amounts for Sunday night into Monday may be in the 25 to 35 mm range.

Please clear drainage basins of ice buildup in more urban areas. This will assist in more effective water flow and may prevent basement flooding.

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
