Residents across parts of southern Ontario and Quebec are advised to monitor the forecast closely as severe weather, including the potential for tornadoes, is expected through Wednesday.

That's as the remnant moisture associated with the once powerful, and deadly Hurricane Beryl makes its way through the region, bringing torrential, and potentially flooding rains.

10:45 AM. EDT - A tornado watch is in effect across parts of southern Ontario amid a severe storm threat Wednesday afternoon/evening. A tornado watch means that conditions are favourable for the development of tornadoes.

Pay close attention to the latest alerts in case the tornado watch is upgraded to a tornado warning in your area. Have a plan in place to seek safe shelter in case severe weather threatens your home, your office, or while you’re driving.

Soaking rains hit as Beryl remnants track through

In addition to tornado watches for the Niagara region, rainfall warnings and special weather statements cover most of southern Ontario and Quebec, with the threat for very high precipitation rates due to torrential downpours. The beginnings of the moisture-packed low came through extreme southwestern Ontario Tuesday overnight, ramping up Wednesday morning as the rain moved east. Eastern Ontario, including Ottawa, and Quebec, including Montreal, can expect to see rainfall by early Wednesday afternoon. It will file in from the south, through the Ohio Valley, over Lake Erie, and move northward in waves through Thursday.

Rainfall amounts are likely to be highly variable, but with some of the harder hit areas threatened with 75-100+ mm by the time all is said and done. The intense rainfall rates could impact travel, with drivers being urged to leave plenty of extra time for commuting. Avoid driving through flooded roads, especially underpasses.

"Heavy rains can cause flash flooding and ponding of roads. Local flooding is possible in low-lying areas," says Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in the rainfall warning. "If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch the taillights of vehicles ahead and be prepared to stop."

Severe thunderstorm threat, with risk of strong winds, large hail, and tornadoes

While driven by an upper-level trough, at the surface, the system will send a warm front through southern Ontario and Quebec. Around this front is where we expect to see the heaviest rain fall, as well as the risk of severe thunderstorms. Through this afternoon dry pockets in the precipitation will allow for some instability to build.

The southwestern and eastern shores of Lake Ontario, as well as the eastern shores of Lake Erie and Niagara region, are at greatest risk of seeing severe storms develop. In particular, it is possible that the Niagara region could see some rotating storms in the afternoon. It will be important to stay up-to-date on the alerts in your area as conditions can change very quickly when severe weather hits.

Across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and through cottage country, and towards Ottawa, between 30-50 mm is forecast.

Montreal can expect to see 50-75 mm of rain, with the Eastern Townships picking up between 50-100+ mm.

Flood risk

This type of weather system can produce very high precipitation rates due to torrential downpours. Remember, turn around, don't drown.

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has issued a flood watch.

"The public is urged to stay away from streams, rivers, and shoreline areas. Avoid all recreational activities in or around water at this time, including fishing, canoeing, hiking, etc., as conditions can change rapidly," says the TRCA. "Exercise caution if you must be around any bodies of water, rivers or streams as well as the Lake Ontario shoreline."

The localized flooding from heavy downpours could also cause a significant amount of storm water runoff to make its way into Lake Ontario, raising the lake's pollution levels.
