Discussion:

Heavy rainfall associated with the remnants of Hurricane Beryl may affect portions of southern Ontario beginning Tuesday night or Wednesday, and may persist into Thursday.
Although confidence in the exact track of the weather system is low, these types of systems in the past have given very high rainfall rates in torrential downpours.
Rainfall warnings may be issued as confidence in the track of the system increases.

Southern Ontario and Quebec feels Beryl's remnants on Wednesday and Thursday

The earliest we can expect this moisture-packed low to reach the provinces is on Tuesday overnight, then ramping up Wednesday morning. Eastern Ontario and Quebec can expect to see rainfall by early Wednesday afternoon.
It will file in from the south, through the Ohio Valley, over Lake Erie, and move northward in waves through Thursday.

Between 50-75 mm of rain is expected across Ontario's Bruce Peninsula, the shores of Lake Huron through to Windsor, and Price Edward County to Cornwall.
Across the GTA and through cottage country, between 30-50 mm is expected.

Montreal can expect to see 50-75 mm of rain, with the Eastern Townships picking up between 75-100 mm.

What we will see is a tropical moisture-laden low-pressure system.
The main risks presently with this system in Ontario and Quebec will be heavy downpours, the risk of thunderstorms, and localized flooding.

The localized flooding from heavy downpours could also cause a significant amount of storm water runoff to make its way into Lake Ontario, raising the lake's pollution levels.
