The low pressure that gave our area the heavy rain on Monday has moved to Quebec which will give us another breezy and cold day today. Some clouds this morning but the afternoon should be mostly sunny.
High pressure building into the area will give us another sunny day on Thursday with slightly milder temperatures.
Friday will start off dry but a low pressure system will give us a good chance of rain from Friday night through at least Sunday morning. The models continue to not be in agreement with the outcome of this system so the confidence in this forecast remains low.
Mainly dry with temperatures slightly below normal early next week.
