ON THE 11th HOUR: when the war went quiet
When it comes to our weather, as is so often the case with real estate, it’s all about location. For a few days now, a powerful October nor’easter, just off Cape Cod, has been pounding the New England coastline with wind gusts to 100 km/h, waves of heavy rain and coastal flooding.
The storm has been held to our south by a lovely, large fair-weather system near Quebec City. The centre of high-pressure has a ridge – like an arm – that extends across to Newfoundland. As the storm continues to push northward, the ridge or arm will eventually weaken, allowing the rain and wind to move in.
We are expecting significant rain, especially along Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coastline and southern Newfoundland, but the main area of energy from what’s left of the nor’easter will stay offshore. Once the storm starts to move, it will track eastward fairly quickly. In its wake, a narrow dry slot will slide in to dry things out from west to east.
By Thanksgiving Monday, we’ll be enjoying a nice mix of sun and cloud with pleasant mid-October temperatures. I want to wish everyone a lovely Thanksgiving weekend, surrounded by friends, family and loved ones.
