WEST CARLETON – An originally forecasted 15 millimetres of rain may grow to 40 mm by the time all is said and done tomorrow (June 8) morning.

Environment Canada issued a Special Weather Statement today (June 7) saying “significant rainfall amounts possible.”

Areas struck by possible thunderstorms, may receive more than the forecasted 20 to 40 mm over the rest of the day and tomorrow.

“Showers and occasional thunderstorms are moving across the region as a cold front approaches from the west,” Environment Canada released in a statement today (June 7). “The precipitation is expected to end early Wednesday morning as a cold front moves through. There is still some uncertainty with timing of the cold front that will move across the area. Hence exact timing and total rainfall amounts are subject to change.”
