Here we go again, but this is how Spring goes. After we got teased with a little sunshine on Wednesday, we’re expecting even more rain than we got over the past couple of days.
All things considered, we could be in Central Ontario, where some parts expecting up to 30 centimetres of snow in the next 48 hours. Uh… No, thanks.
From Environment Canada…
- Ottawa North – Kanata – Orléans

Rain, heavy at times is expected. The ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall.
Rainfall amounts of 30 to 50 mm tonight through Thursday night.
Rain is expected to begin overnight tonight and persist through the day Thursday. The rain is forecast to mix with or change to snow Thursday night and come to an end late Friday.
Rainfall warnings are issued for amounts of 25 mm or more in 24 hours or less when the ground is saturated or frozen. For the latest information concerning the potential for spring flooding in your area, please consult the website of your local Conservation Authority or the website of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Don’t approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
