Heavy Rain Expected Monday And Tuesday In Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for heavy rainfall for our area over the next couple of days.

Officials say total rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm are possible with rainfall rates of 25 mm within an hour, particularly Monday evening.

Scattered showers are expected tonight and will become heavy at times overnight. Showers are expected to diminish through Monday morning before another round of heavy rain, likely with thunderstorms, arrives Monday afternoon.

Moderate showers are then expected to continue into Tuesday before coming to an end Tuesday evening. Total rainfall amounts of 20 to 40 mm are expected, however, higher amounts can not be ruled out. Rainfall warnings may be required.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Heavy rainfall in combination with other weather factors, such as hail, wind and lightning will make outdoor activities unsafe.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
