TORONTO – A special weather statement remains in effect for Southern Ontario as a low pressure system slowly makes its way across the region today.

Environment Canada says a complex low pressure system began approaching the Great Lakes from the southwest Monday night and will bring between 10 to 40 millimeters of rain in some areas by Tuesday evening.

The slow-moving system will likely take a couple of days to cross Southern Ontario.

A few clusters of thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon from the Golden Horseshoe into Southwestern Ontario as well as in central regions near Georgian Bay.

Central Ontario will see the bulk of the rain on Tuesday. Eastern Ontario will see the majority of rain with this system fall Tuesday and into the evening hours.

Motorists are being advised to use caution due to possible slick road conditions.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as they may be required or extended.
