Region spared from strong ocean storm
The benefit of having a strong ridge over Hudson Bay and upper low that annoyed the area all of last week is the combination of the two working in tandem kept wet NorEaster away, which made the weekend salvageable, We'll be dealing with what is left of the upper low to the north through the early part of the week before we get back to drier times through midweek.
Nuisance showers through Monday
The best chance for a hit or miss shower for Sunday is over the mountains and north. As the decaying low over New Brunswick sags in through the backdoor, shower activity picks up Sunday night into Monday across the entire region until the system exits the area Monday night.
Breezy conditions are expected out of the northwest as the ocean storm that missed the area intensifies on its way out to sea. Wind gusts could reach in the 20-30 mph range, gradually settling down Monday afternoon into early Tuesday morning.
Outlook through the week
Frost potential is there for the north Tuesday morning and possibly for the western interior Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Temperatures are expected to be a bit on the cool side to start the week, then warm up to slightly above normal midweek. The next chance for a storm comes late week into the weekend, but there are widespread discrepancies with ensemble ideas which makes that idea low confidence for now.
