Heavy rain and strong winds Friday night into Saturday night.
Rain is forecast to begin Friday evening over southwestern Ontario and spread over the remainder of southern Ontario Friday night. Showers at times heavy will continue Saturday before temperatures rapidly fall and light snow develops Saturday night in the wake of a strong cold front.
Rainfall amounts of 20 to 45 mm will be possible by Saturday night.
In addition, very strong southwesterly winds gusting from 90 to 110 km/h are also expected Saturday afternoon near the shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence river valley. By Saturday evening these winds are forecast to shift to the northwest and slowly ease.
Some damage to trees and local power outages will be possible due to these strong winds.
Winds warnings are likely as this event draws closer.
