SD&G – Heavy rain, coupled with high winds, are expected to hit the Seaway Valley tonight.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement this morning for SD&G and much of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley.

It says a storm system from Kansas will make its way into our region tonight with rainfall amount of 15-30 millimeters.

The forecast for Cornwall is calling for 10-15 millimeters tonight and 5-10 tomorrow.
