Forecast Discussion: The area is coming under the influence of high pressure, although we’re on its southern periphery. The center of the high will drift eastward today, from the James Bay across central Québec. Whatever sunshine we get will be somewhat counteracted by a cool northwesterly breeze that will become a bit more northerly as the day progresses. A cool night will follow as the winds subside. Exactly how cool depends on how fast the high clouds start to build in ahead of the next low pressure system, currently organizing over the panhandle of Texas. If not late tonight, then by tomorrow morning high clouds will be overspreading the region ahead of this system’s warm front. Some scattered showers will also be possible tomorrow in association with the warm frontal passage. Unseasonably mild weather will follow for tomorrow night and Friday, as strong southerly winds pump the warmer air in. It will be warm, showery and windy on Friday, before the system’s cold front brings cooler weather for the weekend.
