Weather: Stormy Saturday


Stormy Saturday

By Marek Zebrowski
staff meteorologist

Another potent storm over the Great Lakes will move into Canada, spawning rains along the cold front approaching us from the west on Friday. Moist southeasterly flow and tightening pressure gradients will produce windswept rains on Saturday - especially in the hills to our west, whilst some flooding at times of high tide is likely along the south and east-facing beaches, as gale warnings will be posted along the coast. By early Sunday, winds will shift to west-northwest, with a chance of showers, as colder air sweeps in behind the front.

Today: Some sun early, then increasing clouds in the afternoon. Light south to southeasterly winds. High 64F (18C).

Tonight: Becoming mostly cloudy, with rain developing from west to east. Damp southeasterly winds steadily increasing through the night. Low 54F (12C).

Saturday: Cloudy, windy, and rainy, with some heavier downpours and a rumble of thunder possible, especially to the west and south. Some breaks in the overcast possible late in the day. Milder high of 68F (20C).

Sunday outlook: Cloudy, with a chance of showers, then gradual clearing. Cooler, with highs in the low 60s (1517C).
