An area of high pressure will basically dominate the Maritimes but there will be 3 rather week cold front which are expected to sweep across the region during this time frame. All 3 are quite weak with just some cloud and chance of showers. The 1st frontal passage occurs tomorrow night, the 2nd, Tuesday night and the 3rd Thursday afternoon. The pattern looks to change for the weekend with the approach of a low pressure system spreading rain across the region for Saturday night although there is a lot of discrepancies amongst the various computer models so expect changes in the weekend weather as new data becomes available.
