WEATHER BLOG: Back To Normal
That back door front that had moved southward into the area Thursday evening set the stage for the cool, wet weather we had Friday as the cold front from the wild week-long storm traversing the country moved eastward. The actual primary low is now nearly vertically stacked and sits in eastern Ontario early Saturday morning. A secondary low formed Friday down near the intersection with the back door front and now sits near southern Nova Scotia. There were a couple of reports of wind gusts to about 60 mph from thunderstorms farther to our south and east, but in the viewing area, it’s in the warm sector. For us, the westerly flow and subsidence behind this front and low have moved in and we are in for a dry, breezy and milder feeling day Saturday with sunshine and patchy clouds. After a cool night Saturday, a zone of high pressure will take control for Sunday and we look for decent weather with more sunshine than clouds.
On Monday morning, high pressure will now be stretching from northern Quebec to Maine and to our east in the Atlantic. That will help turn the flow to more southeast Monday and with upper level ridging we will remain dry. The southeast flow will keep temperatures in check Monday, but we will still be up at least several degrees from Sunday. There will be a system passing by to the south Monday, and it should not send any precipitation this far north, but will have to watch this zone of warm advection, though the short wave that helps initiate it will pass by well to the south in the morning.
