Rain and wind warnings cover a large section of eastern Canada as a potent northeast storm, which officially reached “bomb cyclone” status by dropping 24 millibars in pressure in 24 hours as of Thursday morning, continues with its far reaching impact.
While the impacts from this system will be mostly indirect across eastern Ontario, some additional moisture is helping to enhance rainfall totals for a system that moved over the Great Lakes on Wednesday.
The rain, significant at times, will continue through Thursday with upwards of 50 mm possible by the time all is said and done.
