You think Barrie got hit hard with rain? Collingwood got over twice as much

No weather advisories or warnings on the go as of Thursday afternoon

The past two days have certainly left their mark when it comes to the amount of rain we saw.

A rainfall advisory or warning was in place since early Tuesday and continued through to Thursday morning. In that time, many areas across Simcoe County and beyond saw significant rainfall.

It appears Barrie got off easiest; Environment Canada reports the city saw 51.1 mm of rainfall from 8 a.m. Tuesday to 2 p.m. Thursday. In that same timeframe, Base Borden received 65.5 mm, Orangeville saw 69, the Muskoka Airport measured 77.7 mm of rain, the town of Parry Sound endured 91.3 mm, and Newmarket received 96 mm of rainfall all told.

However, the local record holder for this latest storm is the town of Collingwood. Over the course of the past few days, 116.5 mm of rain fell in town.

While rain continues to fall in parts across the region, there were no rainfall advisories or warnings posted for area communities as of Thursday afternoon.
