Significant Rainfall Expected In Region

A warm front from a low pressure area will move through the region this evening and will bring with it a lot of rain. The daytime high will be 5 C. The weather agency predicts rainfall amounts of 10 to 20 mm by Tuesday morning.

A special weather statement was issued for Toronto, York, Peel, Halton and Durham on Monday.

Occassional rainfall, coupled with mild spring-like temperatures, is expected again on Tuesday.

The TRCA says the Old Mill bridge crossing the Humber River and the lower portion of the Don River could be susceptible to ice jams caused by the rain and mild conditions, though other areas could see flooding as well. Visibilities will be frequently reduced to less than 800 metres at times.

Keep your umbrella handy - Environment Canada says to expect another round of rain today, and then more overnight into Wednesday.

The incident reportedly took place at 12:05 PM when the mob stormed the police lockup and took away the two accused. As per the reports, after killing the duo, the people fled from the area before the police could reach the spot.

The rain will finally end Wednesday around midday. Total rainfall amounts through Wednesday morning will be in the 25 to 30 millimetres range. If visibility is reduced while driving, the MTO advises drivers to turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Fog is expected to lift later this morning.

Tuesday's afternoon high is also expected to reach 15 C, which would easily clear the previous record of 12.4 C set back in 1994.

The organization said localized flooding could be the result over the next few days.

Rainfall warnings were also issued for parts of central Ontario.
