Friday May 26th, 8:50am.… A low pressure system located near Cape Cod this morning is expected to track ENE passing over southwestern NS this evening then continue eastward tracking south of Newfoundland tomorrow. Rain from this system has already spread across NS and should be into PEI over the next couple hours. Conditions should improve tomorrow afternoon as the system pulls away to the east. A ridge of high pressure crosses the Maritimes on Sunday with its associated sunshine but a frontal system is expected to set up over the region later Sunday so some cloud and showers are possible later in the day. Right now it looks like Saturday afternoon through Sunday Afternoon should be the best part of the weekend. Looks like a prolonged period of unsettled weather expected for the Maritimes beginning on Monday as a large area of low pressure slowly tracks across Hudson’s Bay. A series of impulses or energy will rotate around this system over the next few days resulting in cloud and showers across the region through late Thursday.
