What you need to know about COVID-19: August 7, 2020
A powerful late-winter storm over the southern tip of James Bay is serving up quite a smorgasbord of weather from northwestern Ontario to the state of Maine.
This intensifying system comes with a split personality – winter on the north side of the low and spring to the south. The leading edge of the snow is moving into western New Brunswick this morning; the rain should start over western Nova Scotia by early afternoon and western Newfoundland shortly after midnight. This is a deep low-pressure system so there will be lots of wind for everyone. We’ll start with a southeast wind, gusting to 60 km/h with higher gusts at the coasts.
As the low tracks north of our region, the wind will come around to the southwest, then the west.
Beware the Ides of March – or at least be dressed for them. A northwest wind will pull in unseasonably cold air; Sunday’s wind chill values will range from –8 to –15.
