The weather service says the most significant rainfall is forecast over the eastern mountains. Urban locations that normally experience rapid runoff may see flash flooding, and quickly responding small streams may also experience similar conditions in areas receiving the heaviest rainfall. According to the NWS, flash flooding is extremely risky.

A flash flood warning means that flash flooding is imminent or already occurring.

A Freezing Rain warning has been placed throughout much of the area, with Environment Canada projecting ice build-up of 10 to 20 millimeters across the region by Sunday morning, with some areas possibly receiving more than 20 millimeters of freezing rain.
