A rainfall warning is in effect for:

Bracebridge - Gravenhurst

Huntsville - Baysville

Burks Falls – South River

Town of Parry Sound - Rosseau

Environment Canada says rain, heavy at times is expected and the ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall.

Rain, heavy at times, will move into Central Ontario overnight and continue into Friday evening. Total rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 millimetres are forecast by late Friday night. Local amounts exceeding 50 mm are possible.

Flood emergencies are in effect for much of Muskoka. For information concerning flooding, please consult your local municipality.

This heavy rain is associated with a Texas low that will track across Southern Ontario on Friday.
