Friday, August 31st 8:00am.. A cold front swept across the island yesterday morning bringing some cloud and isolated showers. The air is noticeable cooler this morning as well behind the cold front. A area of high pressure centered in central Quebec will drift eastward passing of the region on Saturday. Generally clear skies and light north winds will continue. Once the high moves east, winds will shift around to the south moderating temperatures and humidities once again for Sunday. A frontal system oriented E-W will then slowly begin drift south from northern Quebec bringing cloud and chance of showers for Monday. Unfortunately this front will stall in this E-W orientation over the Maritimes through Thursday accompanied by varying amounts of cloud and showers. High pressure returns for Friday.
Precipitation… Generally dry conditions expected til Monday afternoon then increasing chances of showers as that frontal system approaches from the north. Just a chance of a shower Tuesday and Wednesday. Better chance on Thursday as an area of low pressure ripples eastward along this stalled front. Dry conditions return on Friday. Best chance for any real rainfall will be Thursday.
