May Sun, May Rain

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

As the cold front clears the coast early Friday and the attendant low pressure system continues towards the Maritimes, a high pressure cell will settle in overhead, assuring a pleasant spring afternoon. However, another storm system, charging out of the Plains will continue on a similar track, approaching our area with showers by late Saturday. Once again, scattered rains and a cold front will sweep through, with clearing skies for later on Sunday. This second system will usher in a somewhat cooler air, arriving on a broad northwesterly flow and also bring us nice weather for the early part of next week.

Today: Becoming partly to mostly sunny with fresh westerly breezes. High 68F (20C).

Tonight: Mostly clear and cool. Diminishing winds. Low 43F (6C).

Saturday: Increasing clouds with showers approaching from the west late in the day. Afternoon highs near 60F (15C) with some onshore winds shifting to southwest and increasing towards dark.

Saturday night: Showers likely. Windy. Low near 46F (8C)

Sunday outlook: Morning clouds and leftover showers departing, with a partly sunny afternoon. Cooler, with highs near 60F (15C), lows near 40F (5C).
