Weird Summer Wind for the Weekend

There will be two systems at play this weekend: a large high-pressure cell over northern New Brunswick and a developing offshore storm. The closer you are to the fair-weather system in Quebec, the more sun you'll see; the nearer you are to the Atlantic Ocean, the greater your chances of showers. There will be one common denominator and that's the wind - it will blow from the high to the low and result in a raw north-easterly breeze.
