Warm & Wet Today: Our big low pressure system continues to roll in from the West today. Clouds and showers continue to dominate across NL today and into tonight. The Island is looking particularly wet along the South Coast as well as the Northern Peninsula and into the Straits where another 30 mm is possible by Thursday morning. Scattered showers for most of Labrador, with steadier showers continuing in the West. The Southerly flow is already pumping in the warm temperatures & high dew points and afternoon temps will be feeling into the mid-high 20's across the Island.
Flurries Tonight?: On the other side of the system, a cold front will slice through Western Labrador this afternoon dropping temps. The mercury will drop all the way to freezing by Thursday morning, which will bring a possibility of WET FLURRIES mixing in with showers into Labrador City & Wabush! Interesting little note that Thursday will be exactly 3 months (June 5th) since your last taste of Snow. Temps won't recover much in Lab West on Thursday. Looks like a high of 6° bringing your first single digit high since late June.
Thursday Mix: Overall, Thursday looks mainly cloudy for the Province with a chance of showers and drizzle for most. The West Coast will be the wet spot as another wave shoots in along our secondary cold front with more showers. Temperatures remain mild (near 20°) in the East, but will be into the teens for in the West and even cooler in Labrador behind the cold front.
Long Range Sun: At this point Friday and Saturday are looking solid across most of the Island. Friday will be a little on the cool side behind our front, however high pressure sliding to our South is set to bring some Sun and a Southerly flow returns with warmer temps for Saturday. A system sliding into Labrador Friday into Saturday with clouds and showers looks like it will close the gap and bring building clouds and showers late Saturday and into Sunday for the Island.
Tropics Update: As I mentioned last night here on the blog, we'll be keeping a close eye on 97L over the next few days. The disturbance in the Caribbean is now being given a 40% of becoming a Tropical Cyclone over the next 48 hours and a 60% chance over the next 5 days. IF it can get it's act together, long range forecast models are bringing the Storm Northward near Bermuda early next week and some models even bring the Storm into Atlantic Canada's waters. This storm has a long way to go, but I'll be keeping an eye on it.
