Remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon expected to rain on GTA, southern Ontario

Gordon has seen the Florida Keys and the Gulf Coast beaches, but who knew last week that his travels would take him directly through Ohio. As a result a Flood Watch has already been issued for Oneida, Madison, Chenango, and Otsego counties from 8:00 PM Sunday through 2:00 AM Tuesday.

Accumulated rain from what is now Tropical Depression Gordon, makes for a big splash across a frontage road along Interstate 55 in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday.

Gordon is no longer a tropical system as it spins through central Arkansas, but it is responsible for the oppressive humidity area wide.

It feels a bit more like September than the weather we've had lately.

As the storm tracks northeast the heaviest rainfall is expected Saturday night and Sunday.

Some shower activity is possible throughout the day today, but forecasters say things should pick up overnight tonight, all-day Sunday and into Monday.

Look for highs around 90 with a 30% chance of pop-up showers and storms.

High temperatures today reached close to 70 degrees combined with winds out of the north around 10 miles per hour. There's a chance of rain Tuesday and Thursday.

Driving in such conditions can turn treacherous, as about 9 a.m. Saturday when the I-70/I-71 split Downtown became flooded with about 20 inches of water because of clogged storm drains.
