As there is some uncertainty with the track and timing of a low pressure system and associated cold front that will move across the area, exact timing and total rainfall amounts are subject to change.

Elsewhere in the greater Kawarthas region, including Peterborough County, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland County, and Hastings County, there is a 40 per cent change of showers on Monday afternoon, increasing to 60 per cent in the evening, with showers expected on Tuesday.
