Weather: Fair Fall Faltering?


Fair Fall Faltering?

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A large high pressure covering almost all of the east coast has been responsible for the clear skies and for bringing down the colder Canadian air giving night time temperatures dipping into the 40s, even managing to produce a touch of frost in some areas. As this high pressure slips over us early Tuesday, winds will shift to southerly and then southwesterly, bringing up warmer air from theSouth. Skies will remain clear Tuesday and temperatures will be pushing back up towards 80F (26C). During the night however a low menacing in the northwest will begin to make its presence felt, as clouds build up quickly after midnight. If the supply of moisture has been sufficient from the south, some light rain will accompany the clouds with the best bet for a sprinkle being from the afternoon onwards.

Today: Fair. Winds from the southwest at 5-10 mph (8-16 kph). High 79F (26C).

Tonight: Clouding up. Low 62F (17C)

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. Chance of light to moderate rain during the day. High 75F (24C). Low 61F (17C).

Thursday: Partly cloudy. High in the 70s (21-26C). Lows in the 50s (10-15C).
