Weather - A Scary Scenario


A Scary Scenario

By Gerard Roe

A change of winds to northerly has heralded a cool down after the weekend's pleasant excesses. The trailing edge of a cyclone developing off-shore today will bring blustery winds from the north adding a bite to the air.

There is some uncertainty beyond today because of a large storm brewing in the central United States. Currently, the storm is predicted to move through to Ontario and Quebec. If this is so, we will see only the southern edge of it and escape with light precipitation. However, we are protected by only a weak ridge in the mid-level flow, and it would not take much of a deviation for us to see larger rainfall totals beginning Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Today: A clear, fine day. Winds moderate to strong out of the northwest. After a chilly start, temperatures will make it up to only 51F (11C).

Tonight: Cold and clear with winds becoming calmer toward midnight. Low 37F (3C).

Wednesday: Increasing clouds from the West. Chance of rain by afternoon. High 57F (14C). Low 43F (7C).

Thursday (Halloween): Chance of showers early, then a good chance of some clearing in time for ghoulish geeks to emerge. High around 60F (16C). Low in the mid 40s (7C).
