Tuesday Early Morning Update- September 3, 2019
Good Taco Tuesday Morning ya’ll!
On Satellite and Radar, we have a band of clouds, and some rain showers now moving away from the Tri-Counties. This rain from a weak cold front will continue to spread northward across the province today, can’t rule out a few showers or rumble of thunder this morning. But I do think we are done with the rain!
Highs today will get into the low 20’s once again, 21 in Digby, 23 in Yarmouth & Shelburne, could even be a few spots touching 24. Dew points today are in the 17 to 19 degree range, so the Muggies are back, it’s going to feel a bit sticky at the coast, but inland areas will feel a bit uncomfortable.
Frizz factor today is Frizzy! Sorry ladies!
Skies will be mostly clear tonight, but high dew point temperatures, and fog will help keep the overnight lows a bit warm. Lows of 14 to 17 tonight.
Tomorrow, we see more sunny skies thanks to a building ridge. Highs of 22 to 24 degrees, cooler on the coast. Dew point temperatures will be 16 to 18 so slightly lower than today, so you might notice a little difference in the air tomorrow, should be slightly less humid, but still in the sticky to uncomfortable range.
Late Tomorrow night into Thursday afternoon, there is another weak front that will pass through to give us some more light showers. These will be more widespread in the overnight hours, by morning on Thursday it will be very spotty and just some light drizzle.
Could pick up a good 5-10mm, Speaking of Thursday… it’s the First day of School!
School Bell Forecast looks like this:
7am: Clouds & Drizzle. Temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees.
Noon: Mostly Cloudy, Temperatures of 18 to 23 degrees. Warmest in Shelburne, coolest in Digby.
3pm: Partly Sunny and Temperatures of 20 to 24 degrees.
To the tropics now,
Hurricane Dorian, continues to refuse to budge, but has weaken some more and is now a Category 3 hurricane with 120 M.P.H. winds, He could be a Category 2 by Tomorrow morning at this rate. The Grand Bahama Islands continue to get pummeled by Dorian this morning. Dorian continues to have a track that will curve it up the coast nearing the Carolinas by Thursday and then gathering speed as it heads near our province in time for the weekend, Landfall looks to be somewhere in Cape Breton, however the storm will be so large and very close that here in the Tri-Counties, we could be feeling very strong Tropical Storm force conditions and perhaps some hurricane force conditions near Shelburne. Rainfall of 80 to 150mm is possible on Saturday, along with winds as high as 70 to 100 km/h sustained and gusts over 140km/h in Shelburne.
Invest 91-L continues to show signs of organization, and could form into Tropical Depression # 6 later today, if not maybe even Tropical Storm Fernand. This system looks to bring heavy rain and Gusty winds to the Cape Verde Islands, and then out into the open waters, this system has no threat to us.
Invest 92-L is gathering some organization, could become a Tropical Depression by end of the week. This system looks to bring some unsettled weather to Bermuda, but looks to remain far in the Atlantic to not bother any landmass.
Invest 93-L continues to show Organization, and a Tropical Depression # 7 or Tropical Storm Gabrielle could form later today or Tomorrow as it heads for the Gulf of Mexico and into Mexico, this system will have no impact what so ever in Canada.
Here now is your forecast
For today, Morning showers and perhaps a thunder shower then clearing near noon. Winds NW light. Highs of 21 in Digby to 24 in Shelburne and 23 in Yarmouth, Cooler on parts of the coast.
