Monday, April 30th 6:55am.. The low pressure system which gave the rain to the island yesterday morning is now located off St John’s Newfoundland. This system brushed the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton yesterday and gave significant amounts of rain to that area along with some flooding. An upper air disturbance located vicinity New Hampshire will slowly drift eastward over the next 36 hours passing just south of NS Tuesday afternoon/evening. Varying amounts of clouds and showers will accompany this system. A low pressure system will then approach from the west on Wednesday passing north of the island overnight. More cloud and rain will accompany this system. The associated cold front will then sweep across the island and settle in an east-west fashion across NS. Another area of low pressure will then ripple eastward along this stalled frontal boundary crossing the island late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Skies should finally begin to clear as an area oh high pressure builds in from the west.
