environmentcanada-oct17-02A fall storm expected for Northeastern Ontario tonight and Tuesday.

An active fall weather pattern has settled in over the province. An initial round of rain and some thunderstorms will move across portions of Northeastern Ontario today. A more important low-pressure system will emerge from Kansas this morning and intensify into a rather classic fall storm as it moves across the Great Lakes tonight then quickly into Northern Quebec later on Tuesday.

Significant rain is expected with this storm, in the order of 20 to 30 millimetres with localized 40 mm likely in a few locales. Most of the rain will fall tonight and may be accompanied by some strong thunderstorms which may pack a bit of a punch with gusty winds and some hail. Strong gusty southwest winds of 50 to 70 km/h will affect many areas later tonight into Tuesday as well.

Residual rain will linger in Far Northeastern Ontario on Tuesday before exiting the province later in the day.
