Scattered thunderstorms possibly producing significant rainfall amounts this afternoon.

With a moist airmass in place over Southern Ontario, torrential downpours are a concern. Some of these thunderstorms may be capable of producing rainfall amounts of 30 to 40 mm. Should several thunderstorms track over the same area, rainfall amounts near 50 mm may be possible.
