Friday kicked off with severe thunderstorm warnings across Newfoundland's northern Peninsula with heavy downpours being the primary threat. The watches and warnings were dropped ahead of the morning commute, but the risk for rain moves into central portions of the province through the day.

"An offshore low will also bring the the risk of thunderstorms through the Maritimes on Friday with rain showers expected to persist through Saturday," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter.

While the bulk of the moisture is expected to stay off to sea, between 20-30 mm of rain is possible in coastal sections of Nova Scotia. A subtle shift in the track of this system could also end up bringing significant rains.

"The start of the weekend is looking a little dodgy, but nice dry break through Sunday afternoon, before the next wave of moisture moves in late Monday," says Tyler Hamilton, another meteorologist at The Weather Network.
