What's working for businesses in 2021?
A stalling spring storm is going to put a damper on most of our outdoor Easter plans. A heavy pulse of rain pushing in from the west will reach eastern regions late today - and that's where it will sit.
The trough or extension from the northern low will act as a conveyor belt, pulling in a steady feed of moisture along with a mild but gusty south wind. A fair-weather system east of Newfoundland will create a blocking pattern; eventually, the system will retrograde, meaning we can expect a second wave of rain from the same system.
Three-day rain totals could be over 75 mm – a month's worth of rain, for some, in four days.
By Monday, the trough will break down; a secondary, weaker low will develop off Nova Scotia's south shore. The counterclockwise rotation around the system will continue to serve up a mix of showers, flurries, and a little bit of sunshine. Unsettled, to say the least.
