Weather - Same Old, Same Old


Same Old, Same Old

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The train of semi-weekly storms we have had for the last several weeks shows no sign of abating yet, and the pattern is a familiar one: With a storm intensifying along the U.S.-Canadian border, there is some redevelopment at the coast, and the cold front swinging by brings in precipitation.

Tuesday shows morning showers spreading in from the West, accompanied by strong southerly winds ahead of the cold front. With an unstable atmosphere and good lifting associated with the system, we should see some isolated thunderstorms pushing through the area during the afternoon. Most of the rain will peter out during the night, leaving a cloudy start to Wednesday. The sun will try to peek out again from behind the clouds during the rest of the day and most of Thursday, but yet another cyclone is looking to make its presence felt in the outlook, spreading rain again across the region on Friday.

Today: Morning showers with moderate to strong winds from the south. Chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Winds switching round to westerly after the passage of the front in the evening. High 57F (14C).

Tonight: Rain clearing from the west. Low 43F (6C).

Wednesday: A mix of sun and clouds with winds out of the northwest. Some scattered showers possible especially to the north as the moisture wraps around the storm. High 56F (13C). Low 43F (6C).

Thursday: Some sun early, then clouds later. High around 60F (16C). Low around 45F (7C).
