Rainfall warning in effect for:

Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Rain, heavy at times continues. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.

Rain will continue today and tonight before gradually coming to an end Tuesday afternoon.

Total rainfall amounts of 50 to 75 mm are possible by Tuesday afternoon.

A brief period of freezing rain is also possible early this morning, especially for areas away from Lake Superior.

For information concerning flooding, please consult your local Conservation Authority or Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry District office.

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow, fast-moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle or a person away. Keep children and pets away from creeks and river banks.
