Periods of rain, heavy at times, are forecast to begin Thursday morning. Rainfall amounts in the 15 to 25 mm range are expected by late Thursday evening. A few isolated thunderstorms are also possible Thursday afternoon.

The heavy rain will combine with mild temperatures near 7 degrees Celsius to produce potentially significant snowmelt and localized ponding on streets and other low lying areas.

The heavy rain and mild temperatures are associated with a strong Colorado low that will transition across northern Ontario Thursday through Thursday night.
