A special weather statement is in effect for the region.

Environment Canada says showers with isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop this evening over the area. The showers are then expected to become heavier through the overnight hours before tapering to scattered showers on Friday.

Total rainfall amounts are generally expected to be in the 20 to 40 mm range by Friday afternoon. There is a possibility that some areas will see multiple thunderstorms that could result in rainfall amounts of 60 mm or more.
