London didn’t get as much rain as many were forecasting, but the weather system that moved across southern Ontario from east Texas didn’t hold back north of us.
“The rain amounts for London were kind of underwhelming yesterday,” said AM980 weather specialist John Wilson.
“That’s why we weren’t under a rainfall warning, and to the north of us they were.”
Wiarton suffered the brunt of Tuesday’s downpour with 90 mm of rainfall recorded. Collingwood got 62 mm, and Goderich recieved 39 mm.
While a special weather statement, followed by a sever thunderstorm watch from Environment Canada cautioned of up to 40 mm of rain, London recorded just over 18 mm of rain. Up in Kitchener, they got just over 27 mm.
