This front will bring about a weather pattern change as the warm summer-like weather will come to an end and fall weather begins. The remnants of “Florence” are expected to pass just south of NS Tuesday night with  with some enhances rain fall for there but not expecting much for the island. High pressure begins to build in behind the front cresting over the region Thursday night but the cool unstable air will make for cloudy periods and chance of showers. These conditions will also be ripe for cold-core funnels and waterspouts overt the waters surrounding PEI. The next weather system will be approaching Friday with rain developing as a strong autumn system passes to the NW.  The coldest air of the season is then set to invade the Maritimes on Sunday.

Precipitation.. Showers tonight through tomorrow. Chance of showers on Wednesday and Thursday. Rain on Friday, Chance of showers over the weekend.
