Environment Canada issues Special Weather Statement for Toronto

Oct 30 2019, 6:01 am

Here comes the rain again… and lots of it. So much so that Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto on Wednesday morning.

According to the weather agency, “potentially significant rainfall” is expected today through Friday morning.

“A low pressure system will approach Southern Ontario from the southwest. Rain is forecast to begin this morning and end Friday morning,” states the agency.

“Rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm are possible, with the heaviest rain occurring Thursday afternoon. Strong northwesterly to westerly wind gusts of 70 km/h are possible Thursday night into Friday morning.”

So not only will it be rainy, it will also be windy.

Environment Canada warns that if visibility is reduced during driving, turn on headlights and maintain a safe following distance.

“Remember pedestrians are more difficult to see when it is dark and raining.”

It will be 10ºC tonight, and will go up to a high of 13ºC  for Halloween day.

Night time will get chilly, dropping to a low of 2ºC for Halloween night.
