Blustery start to the week in Atlantic Canada, heavy rain in isolated areas

Monday, October 18th 2021, 8:20 am - A pattern change is coming to Atlantic Canada and the warmth that the region has recently seen will not be making a return.

Many areas in Atlantic Canada will see unsettled weather on Monday that includes rainfall and blustery winds. A widespread 10-30 mm of rain is possible, but some areas stand to see over 50 mm. Beyond, forecasters are watching a soggy system that could track into the region late-week and bring a significant amount of rain. Details and timing, below.

MONDAY: INFLUX OF MOISTURE CAUSES A RAINY START TO THE WEEK

The soggy weather will track out of the Maritimes and into Newfoundland on Monday morning, bringing modest rainfall totals that could reach 30 mm in western areas. The heaviest totals are expected around Burgeo where up to 75 mm of rain is possible.

Intense winds will also impact a number of areas as the week begins. Inverness County could see wind gusts up to 100 km/h and gusts up to 120 km/h in the Wreckhouse area are possible.

Considerably cooler temperatures will be present across the Gulf, with single-digit highs for most of Newfoundland, but double-digit highs in one or two regions is certainly possible.

BEYOND: COOLER TEMPERATURES RETURN, UNSETTLED CONDITIONS

A low pressure system will stall over Atlantic Canada, bringing occasional showers for Newfoundland and the eastern Maritimes through mid-week, along with cooler temperatures in the low double digits.

The next rainmaker to watch comes late-week, with a system that could bring rain to the Maritimes Friday and to Newfoundland next weekend.
