Weather - Final Fling


Final Fling

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

Currently, there is an interesting, if rather messy, weather pattern. A system with a double center is approaching from the west, and there is a fast moving and powerful rain-bearing system coming up from the south. The weather for Tuesday and early Wednesday will be dictated by the confluence of these systems. Combined, they add up to a rather rainy period. The majority of the rain from the southern system will fall off-shore, but we will likely catch the western edge of it during the afternoon bringing moderate rain over the area starting in the south and spreading northwestwards. Rain should move out of the area by Wednesday morning leaving a mix of sun and clouds, then some clearing behind the departing systems. Thursday looks set for partly cloudy weather and warming temperatures. In the outlook, there is a chance of clouds and rain returning on Friday to dampen the week's end.

Today: Cloudy with a chance of showers in the morning. Rain during the afternoon, and winds out of the south. There is also a chance of thunderstorms across the region during the afternoon. High 64F (20C).

Tonight: Continuing likelihood of precipitation, diminishing towards morning. Low 46F (9C).

Wednesday: Any remaining precipitation moving out of the area during the morning. Becoming partly cloudy. High 66F(21C). Low 45F(8C).

Thursday: Some sunshine. High close to 70F (24C). Low around 45F(8C).
