A rainfall warning in effect for the Muskoka region.

Environment Canada says rainfall, combined with melting snow, is expected. The ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall.

Rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm are expected today and tonight.

In the Almaguin Highlands a freezing rain warning is in effect.

Precipitation will begin as snow and ice pellets this morning. Snow and ice pellet amounts of 2 to 5 cm are possible before the precipitation changes to freezing rain this afternoon. Freezing rain will last for several hours before changing to rain tonight.
