Sunday 6:40am A cold front swept across the Island last night bringing showers and thundershowers to the region. High pressure will now build in from the west and expected to slide south of the Maritimes on Monday. Things stat to get really interesting mid week as a deep trof of low pressure moves slowly east towards the area from the Great Lakes. This trof will tap tropical moisture and the conveyor belt will result in significant amounts of rainfall. Some models are slow to move this trof eastward out of the area and while others push the trof off the coast by Friday. Difficult to go beyond Thursday until the motion of this trof becomes clearer.
