Saturday, October 5th 2019, 11:30 am - Extended period of unsettled weather and substantial rain coming to Atlantic Canada next week.
Much of Atlantic Canada has now settled into a much more autumnal pattern with cool conditions dominating right through the weekend.
The chilly conditions will end with rebounding temperatures and Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham says that much milder weather is expected across Atlantic Canada early next week, and even the Avalon will likely reach the upper teens on Tuesday.
The mild temperatures will accompany a cold front that will cross into the Maritimes with some tropical moisture surging north, which will set up an extended period of unsettled weather.

Next week's rainy conditions will be enhanced by the disorganized remnants from both former tropical cyclones Jerry and Karen.
"We're seeing some lingering moisture from these old tropical systems over the sub-tropics of the Atlantic, which will get drawn up into a system's cold front that will be approaching Atlantic Canada and then stall over the region," says Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg.
Early indications suggest that some areas could possibly see anywhere between 50-100 mm of rain by next Thursday.
