Weather - Tranquil Times


Tranquil Times

By Marek Zebrowski

A fast and relatively uneventful zonal (west-to-east) flow, combined with a weak ridge of high pressure will bring a few more of those quiet November days with temperatures but a few notches shy of the norm. Low level moisture, rotating around a low slowly pulling away from the Maritimes, will cause some afternoon clouds on Friday. Another upper air disturbance will sail quickly through Eastern Canada on Saturday, with clouds and light precipitation confined only to the northern sections of New England. In the wake of this storm, cold air will be drawn towards our region; as it lurks on our doorstep, we'll have to watch it closely.

There are signs of mixed precipitation for early next week, and perhaps more substantial problems just around Thanksgiving.

Today: Early sun, then increasing clouds. Moderate northwesterly winds. High 44F (6C).

Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy, with clearing around dawn. Low in town near 32F (0C), mid 20s (-4 to -2C) elsewhere.

Saturday: Sunny and somewhat milder, with a high of 46F (8C). Clouds will increase towards dusk; winds will turn to west-southwest.

Sunday outlook: Cloudy morning followed by fair skies. Lows near 34F (1C), highs in mid to upper 40s (7-9C).
