Long range models are hinting at a tropical system moving up the coast mid week but much too early to go into details yet.

A potent cold front will then sweep eastward across the Maritimes tomorrow as the low pressure tracks by to the north. Showers and thundershowers will accompany this feature. Cooler high pressure then builds in from central Canada to end the week but this cooler air will also result in daytime instability which may result in afternoon cloud build-ups and possible showers for the Saturday -Monday time frame.
