Showers and some thunderstorms are in store for Toronto and surrounding regions on Tuesday, Environment Canada says.

The federal weather agency issued a special weather statement Monday calling for the possibility of "significant rainfall" into Tuesday.

The city could see total rainfall amounts of 25 to 50 millimetres, though local areas could see more than that if thunderstorms move in.

The rain is expected to end Tuesday evening as a cold front moves in.
