Total rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm are possible by Monday night.

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

When safe to do so, ensure storm drains are clear of leaves and debris to minimize flooding.

This rainfall is due to a low pressure system that is forecast to track northeast across southern Ontario on Monday.
