Forecast Discussion

High pressure will continue to slide offshore today as an area of low pressure approaches the St Lawrence River Valley for Sunday. The exiting high will bring a warm and moist return flow to the summits keeping temperatures well above normal as summit fog lingers. As the low approaches, it will swing a warm front northward overnight. This may result in a few light rain showers or thunderstorms across the region after midnight. Sunday, a trailing cold front from the low will approach from the west. This will spread rain showers and thunderstorms in through the day. Thunderstorms may become severe during the afternoon resulting in strong and sudden gusts of wind, small hail, or heavy downpours.
