Warning Issued for Potential Flooding in Toronto Tonight

Grab your umbrellas, Toronto

Environment Canada has issued a flooding warning for Southern Ontario starting Tuesday night and going into early Wednesday morning.

Toronto is expected to get about 15 – 25 millimeters of rain, although not a lot, because the ground is still frozen, Environment Canada says it won’t be able to absorb all the rain expected to come down.

Although it isn’t expected to be nearly as bad as the flooding from 2013, people living in more isolated areas and near creeks should look out for higher levels of water and flooding and take caution.

It’s going to be a rainy couple of days, but at least Torontonians can enjoy some warmer weather, Tuesday being 8 degrees and Wednesday going as high as 15 degrees.

But don’t get too excited though, the temperature is expected to drop back into the negatives on Thursday and into the weekend with possible flurries. Winter isn’t done with us yet.
