Tuesday 6:30am A low pressure system located just north of Cape Breton this morning will track northward into Newfoundland this morning. The rain associated with this system has basically ended with another 13.2 mms falling in my rain gauge just west of Charlottetown, meanwhile an area of high pressure will slip by to the south of the Maritimes today and tomorrow. A cold front will approach from the west late Wednesday then cross the region on Thursday bringing in the coolest air so far of the season. High pressure returns for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The computer models are backing off now on the east coast development that was expected for the beginning of next week at least in the last run so will have to wait and see how the next set of models do.
