Sunday, October 28th 9:00am.. The wet stormy weather pattern continues across the island for the next week or so. A low pressure system (The remnants of Tropical System Willa) moved up the coast yesterday and is now located inland near Cape Cod. A warm front extending northeastward from this system brought the snow and rain to the Maritimes overnight. This front is now in the process of moving northward across the island now and we will see temps climb into the 13-15 range once the front get north and this should also bring a temporary end to the rain. The low itself near Cape Cod will continue to move northward across eastern Quebec today. A secondary low pressure will develop near Cape Cod tomorrow morning and track NE right across the Maritimes Monday afternoon-overnight with more rain. This system pulls away to the NE Tuesday morning allowing high pressure to briefly build in from the west cresting over the island Wednesday morning. This feature should give some sunshine but short lived as a cold front will be approaching from the NW bringing another round of cloud and showers by Wednesday evening. The front then stalls in a NE-SW fashion across the Maritimes Thursday. Strong low pressure located in the American mid-west will then move NE along the frontal boundary passing along the St Lawrence river valley Friday morning. This will draw the front northward again as a warm front putting the island back on the warm side allowing temps to climb again back well above normal but unfortunate;y it will be accompanied by another rain event. The cold front extending back to the SW from this low stall across the Maritimes for Saturday maintaining cloud and showers. Yet another low pressure system will develop along the American seaboard Saturday night and will race NE across the region on Sunday with another rain and wind event. Things finally settle down on Monday with high pressure in control but more cloud and showers on Tuesday. THE STORMY WET WEATHER CONTINUOUS…
