It turns out April showers isn’t just a casual expression.
At least not to Environment Canada.
The weather site has issued a Special Weather Statement for the City of Toronto concerning the amount of rainfall we’re about to receive over the next 24 hrs. Up to 35mm of rain is expected to fall in Toronto between now and Tuesday night – 15-25 mm today, 5-10 mm tomorrow. Not enough to issue an offical rainfall warning, but enough to raise concern.
According to Environment Canada, we’re not likely to see the sun again until Wednesday morning due to all the rain.
Still, at least we’ll be able to enjoy spring-like temperatures:
You can read Environment Canada’s Special Weather Statement in full below:
Total rainfall amounts of 20 to 30 millimetres are expected with a low pressure system approaching this evening and the rain will continue into Tuesday.
Rain from this low will move into areas extending from Lake Huron to the Golden Horseshoe by early this evening, then spread northeast to remaining regions including the National Capital by midnight.
The rain will come to an end on Tuesday night as the low pressure area moves away into Quebec.
These rainfall amounts are below the criterion of 50 mm rain in 24 hours required for a rainfall warning.
