The remnants of Hurricane Beryl, now a tropical depression, are expected to bring heavy rainfall to southern Ontario and Quebec this week. Environment Canada has issued special weather statements for most of the regions, warning residents of torrential downpours.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, heavy rainfall of 50-75 mm is forecasted for regions including the Greater Toronto Area, Bruce Peninsula, Lake Huron, Windsor, Price Edward County, and Cornwall. Montreal and the Eastern Townships are expected to receive between 50-100 mm of rain.

The incoming low-pressure system carrying the remnants of Hurricane Beryl is set to bring warm, moisture-filled air to the provinces. The rainfall, heavy at times, is expected to start in extreme southwestern Ontario and then move eastward towards Quebec.

Residents are advised to stay alert, as these types of systems historically produce high precipitation rates in the form of torrential rain. The potential risks include localized flooding, the risk of thunderstorms, and stormwater runoff into Lake Ontario.

This is not the first time Ontario and Quebec have felt the impacts of tropical systems. Over the years, several remnants of hurricanes and tropical depressions have made their way to the provinces, affecting areas like Toronto Pearson International Airport, Manitoulin Island, and even crossing Lake Superior.

Stay tuned to The Weather Network for the latest updates on the incoming weather system and its impact on Ontario and Quebec.
