Friday August 26th 7:40am.. Clouds and a few showers are currently crossing the region this morning as an upper air disturbance moves through the Maritimes. Not much of a break behind this system as a cold front will also sweep across the Maritimes later this evening. The front should be east of Cape Breton tomorrow morning allowing high pressure to build in from the west. The air will be cooler on Saturday ans with strong sunshine, we cold see cloud buildups with a chance of an isolated shower. We are also getting in to the time of year where waterspouts are becoming common so be on the lookout for these over the water. High pressure will crest over the island Sunday noonish giving clear skies and basically calm or very light winds. Sunday should be fantastic across the island. The highs shifts east later Sunday and will allow the winds to become southerly. Another cold front will begin to approach the region late Sunday with increasing clouds and a chance of showers overnight into early Monday. The front should move through by Monday evening with clearing skies. High pressure returns for Tuesday then more clouds and showers again for Wednesday as yet another cold front moves across the region.
