Systems at a stand-still
Our morning sunshine is compliments of a lovely area of high pressure that currently sits near Sable Island.
That fair-weather system is not expected to move very much over the next several days. Elsewhere, you’ll find a frontal boundary that stretches from a stalled lowpressure system over Hudson Bay down to the state of Texas. Over the next several days, pulses of energy will race up along that line, each one strengthening the warm southwesterly circulation across our region.
We’ll see more clouds than sun as the stagnant air mass becomes increasingly humid; humidex values will range from 35 to 40 through the early part of next week. By midweek, the line of instability will drop, and the wind will swing around to the north, if only for a day.
I’m watching a more welldefined weather-maker that could drop 20 to 30 mm of rain on Thursday.
