7 DAY FORECAST, ST. JOHN’S
CINDY SAYS: If I had my way, it wouldn’t rain on weekends, but it’s been a dry spring across the Island, and we could use more rain. The average rainfall for June ranges from 88 to 99 mm. With more than half of the month behind us, we’ve received less than 20 mm of rain. On the topic of rain, I continue to track the remnants of tropical storm Claudette that formed in the Gulf of Mexico last night. The rain from the weakening system will feed into a trough that reaches back from an area of low pressure headed for Labrador. It’s going to start to feel muggy on Tuesday; humidex values could climb into the mid-thirties. Rain is likely Tuesday night into Wednesday. I don’t think we’ll get much more than 20 mm but that could change as the energy from what’s left of the storm tracks up the Ohio Valley. A broad ridge of high pressure will build in with sunshine and seasonable temperatures for the later part of the week.
