Thanks to hurricane Epsilon, the highlight of the weekend might be a 10-degree temperature drop on Sunday.
In the meantime, we’re under the influence of a lovely area of high pressure that’s serving some sun and seasonal temperature. The next weather system is going to track across the Gulf of St. Lawrence on its way to Labrador.
Cold air wrapped around the low will serve up as much as 10 cm of snow across Labrador tonight; elsewhere, a strong south wind on the leading edge of hurricane Epsilon will make for a fair Saturday. The weakening hurricane is not expected to make landfall.
Moisture streaming off the top of the offshore storm will brush the Avalon with showers Saturday night. As for the wind, it will intensify in the wake of the storm. Some of the highest wind gusts will be felt across the Avalon, with gusts to 70 km/h from the north on Sunday; elsewhere, that cool north wind will range from 30 to 50 km/h.
The early part of next week will be cool followed by wet then some white.
