CINDY DAY: Cristobal comes calling

Last Sunday evening, tropical storm Cristobal made landfall in southeastern Louisiana. Today, the remnants of the storm are crossing Labrador.

We are on the warmer side of the system, but at this time of the year, that doesn't equate to warmer weather for everyone.

A south to the southwesterly wind is warm unless you live along a south-facing coastline; offshore sea surface temperatures are still in the six to nine-degree range. Today, ahead of the inevitable cold front, a trough, or line of instability, is crossing the region with some showers. We can expect a break in the spotty showers before the cold front moves in Saturday night to Sunday.

There is not much rain in the cold front for most of us but heavier rain is likely over southeastern Newfoundland as the front stalls offshore. The stubborn cloud cover will start to break up on Monday with sunny, warmer weather in store for much of the week.
