Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Woodstock, Tillsonburg, and the rest of Oxford County.

Thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected across the region on Tuesday, with chances of 20 mm to 40 mm of rain. Certain areas that receive more than one round of thunderstorms or where thunderstorms are nearly stationary could see higher amounts of rain.

Environment Canada says that scattered showers and thunderstorms are the result of a moist, unstable airmass hitting Southern Ontario.
