Ontario is dealing with a very slow-moving front that is giving us an abundance of rain, especially for southwestern areas. Sunday is going to be much calmer than the past few days, though we may see some light lake-effect rain around London and Toronto. Sunday is really about the loss of heat and humidity across the province, which should last a few days. Summer isn't over, as temperatures should climb back up on Tuesday. Details and timing, below.
- Perhaps some rain for London and Toronto on Sunday
- Cooldown on Sunday for a few days
- Tuesday the heat and humidity should build back up

A RECORD AMOUNT OF RAIN FOR WINDSOR
From Friday to Saturday morning (totalling 30 hours), Windsor accumulated 134.9 mm of rainfall. That quantity shattered Windsor's previous records.
The records that were broken include daily rainfall from August 28, 2017, totalling 57.4 mm, the average rainfall for August, totalling 72.6 mm, and the highest rainfall measured April 20, 2000, totalling 94.6 mm.
Good news, the storms are easing off.
SUNDAY AND BEYOND: TEMPERATURES COOL OFF, WILL REBOUND BRIEFLY NEXT WEEK
Conditions will be fair and cool Sunday, along with the morning potential for lake-effect rain showers south of Lake Huron. While temperatures will remain cooler to start the week, a warming trend is expected by mid-week.
There is also the potential for a brief return to very warm and humid conditions late week, but then becoming more unsettled as a cold front approaches, with a system or two possible along the boundary. At this point it looks like cooler weather will return during the Labour Day weekend.
