JULY RAIN COULD BE RECORD BREAKER

Environment Canada says there is a possibility of more significant rainfalls but the good news is, not in our part of the province. The weather agency's August outlook calls for near-normal temperatures and precipitation for the month. For south, central and northeastern Ontario however, there is a chance they'll see rainfalls much like we did last month. On July 24th, a low pressure system dumped 103 mm of rain on the City of Kingston creating flash flooding and prompting road closures. Exact precipitation levels have yet to be released for the month but it could be a record breaker like June was for Trenton. It was the wettest June in Trenton since 2015. Environment Canada says 136 mm of rain fell that month, nearly 74 per cent more than the normal 78.3 mm.
