Don’t be fooled by the appearance of the sun on Sunday morning. After a very wet start to the weekend for much of the greater Kawarthas region, more rain is in store for Sunday afternoon and evening (June 27).

For the second day in a row, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for possible significant rainfall for northern Peterborough County and northern Kawartha Lakes, northern Hastings County, and Haliburton County.

Following a lull on Sunday morning, showers and thunderstorms are expected to redevelop again Sunday afternoon into the evening.

Plenty of moisture in the atmosphere will allow rain to fall heavy at times, with localized rainfall amounts reaching 30 to 50 mm in the northern parts of the greater Kawarthas.

In southern Peterborough County and southern Kawartha Lakes, there will be localized rainfall amounts of 10 to 15 mm.

In Northumberland County and in southern Hastings County, there is also a chance of showers and a risk of a thunderstorm, but with less precipitation.
