REGIONAL WEATHER FORECAST: And just like that, it’s January again!

Wednesday will be a day of transition: from today’s bitter wind chill to another pulse of warm air and rain for Thursday. The approaching system currently sits over Texas. The blocking Bermuda High will force the low up and over our region. The warm front will move in late Wednesday with snow changing to rain. Snowfall totals will be fairly light: 2-4 cm with as much as 10 cm across NE New Brunswick. Rainfall should be in the 20 to 30 mm range with higher amounts in a line from SW New Brunswick to the Acadian Peninsula. We can expect a strong but mild south wind with the rain on Thursday; watch for gusts to 80 km/h. The trailing cold front is not due in until Friday afternoon -at that time, another wind shift will bring a drop in temperature for the weekend. There is one more system on the radar right now but it’s a fairly weak one – it could bring a dusting of snow Sunday night. I’ll watch this one as it might intensify a little as it reaches Newfoundland and Labrador on Monday.
