Wednesday, September 30th 2020, 8:51 pm - Temperatures are expected to be well-above seasonal across all Atlantic provinces with daytime highs in the low 20s for most.
The unsettled conditions in Atlantic Canada will continue through the end of the week with more rain and strong winds. Parts of the Maritimes, New Brunswick in particular, are being impacted by damaging winds from a powerful system known as a 'weather bomb.' Most of the region is seeing summer-like temperatures, however, the warmth will flee by the weekend. Details and timing, below.
- Very strong winds, heavy rain continues across Atlantic Canada
- Above-seasonal temperatures continue through the end of the week
- Messy system takes aim for Friday night into Saturday, cooldown beyond
THURSDAY: GUSTING WINDS LINGER
Several regions in Atlantic Canada will continue to see the effects from Wednesday’s ‘weather bomb,’ which brought intense wind gusts over 80 km/h and caused thousands of power outages in New Brusnwick.
This powerful system will continue tracking east and the strongest winds are expected to have pushed past the Maritimes by Thursday morning as it tracks offshore. Lingering moisture is expected across southern and eastern Newfoundland through Thursday.
FRIDAY: SOGGY SYSTEM WILL TRACK IN
Though an upper low in northern Ontario and Quebec is set to send temperatures tumbling in those two provinces, an offshore high pressure will slow a similar return to Earth for the East Coast with above-seasonal conditions dominating through the end of the week.
It will be somewhat unsettled, however. Rain will develop across the region and a brewing low-pressure system off the U.S. East Coast looks to track into Atlantic Canada late Friday and Saturday with gusty winds and a soaking rain.
"Cooler weather will spread into the region behind this system for early next week, with a somewhat active pattern next week – including the potential for a couple of systems to track across the region," Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham says.
