Up to 50mm in places. TWN is calling for tstorms and 40-50mm of rain here in Waterloo.

EC is calling for 20 to 30mm and a thunderstorm overnight.

I like TWN's forecast better. ;)

Feels like we've already had that much rain here in northern Niagara just from this evening! It was pouring for hours on end, with a steady hard rain since early evening. I guess the upside of it, is it should get all the leaves out on the trees.

A few trees around here are already starting to bloom (buds came out last week). Maybe with all this water they're sucking up it'll help get those leaves pushed out nice and green and we can say goodbye to grey winter.
