==DISCUSSION==  
 
SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL GRADUALLY TAPERING OFF TODAY.  
 
RAIN AT TIMES HEAVY IS AFFECTING A GOOD PORTION OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO  
TODAY. THERE IS STILL SOME RESIDUAL FREEZING RAIN NEAR OR NORTH OF  
THE OAK RIDGES MORAINE AS WELL AS FROM THE NORTHERN KAWARTHAS  
TOWARDS EASTERN ONTARIO. RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN THE 20 TO 30 MM RANGE  
ARE LIKELY BY THE TIMES IT TAPERS OFF FROM WEST TO EAST TODAY.

POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ON POORLY DRAINED ROADS AND HIGHWAYS DUE TO
