Good evening! Well it was another nice day today with plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures, and this will continue for 1 more day before we get some nice beneficial rainfall over the Tri-Counties by tomorrow night into Tuesday night.
First let's take a look at the Current conditions, looking at live view of Beautiful Shelburne Harbor! where at this hour it is 11 degrees. Just a nice late summer evening.
Now this high pressure that is north of us bringing us some cool mornings, lot's of sunshine and afternoon warmth is going to make it way over into Newfoundland by tomorrow and this will give us one more day of the long holiday weekend to enjoy the warmth & sunshine, because it ends Monday night.
Until then though, Enjoy this beautiful weather.
Here is your Hourly forecast:
by 3am, it's clear skies and 12 degrees, we will see some fog patches develop!
by 6am, clear skies and near 11 degrees, patchy fog.
We see sunshine continue at 9am and noon with temperatures rising 15-20 degrees.
Looking at your Holiday Monday forecast, looking at sunshine much of the day, we will see increase clouds as we get into the latter part of the afternoon, especially in Digby county. Highs once again in the low to mid-20's and winds from the south-West at 10-20km/h.
Looking at the Almanac for Today in Yarmouth, Hit 21 degrees today, Average is 19, our record today is 27 degrees from back in 2010, just 9 years ago! Our low this morning was 13, The average is 12, so just 1 degree above and our record low was back in 1965 at a cool 4 degrees. Once again, we had no rainfall recorded today.
Kids are going back to school soon! on Thursday, here is a sneak peak at Thursday's School Bell forecast:
cold front will come through in early morning hours with some showers and storms, but that looks to clear out by noon time to give us increasing sunshine and very warm temperatures when get on bus to head home. by 7am at bus stop, looking at temps in the low-10's with showers and drizzle, and perhaps a rumble of thunder and so you may want to bring a light spring jacket and umbrella when head out the door. By noon, we are at already into the lower 20's with showers departing, and by 3pm it's a hot 26 degrees with mostly sunny skies.
Now, we have Hurricane Dorian to talk about!
Latest update from the NHC, shows that Dorian has weakened ever so slightly to 180mph, making her still a very strong Category 5 hurricane.
Dorian remains an incredibly powerful hurricane and it is currently making landfall on the eastern end of Grand Bahama Island. Satellite images show an symmetrical cyclone with a circular 10 n mi diameter eye and intense eyewall convection with lots of lightning being detected. Doppler radar data from Miami and the Bahamas show that Dorian has developed concentric eyewalls, and this feature is also noted by a double wind maximum that is evident in data from the Air Force Hurricane Hunters. The initial intensity of Dorian is set at 155 kt based mostly on the SFMR winds from the aircraft. The aircraft data also indicated that the radii of tropical-storm-force winds are a little larger than they were earlier today.
Dorian is still moving slowly westward at about 5 kt. The ridge to the north of Dorian is gradually weakening and shifting eastward in response to a mid- to upper-level trough that is moving across the eastern U.S. This change in the steering pattern should cause Dorian to slow down even more and perhaps stall, before it turns to the northwest late Monday or early Tuesday. This expected slow motion will likely be devastating to the Great Abaco and Grand Bahama Islands since it would prolong the catastrophic winds, storm surge, and rainfall over those areas. The timing of the northwest or north turn is very critical in determining how close Dorian will get to the Florida peninsula on Tuesday and Wednesday. In general, the track models have changed little from the previous cycle.
it is still to early, to say what impact Dorian may have in our own back yard, but timing looks to be Early Saturday morning and the models are in good agreement that the storm will stay offshore, but be very close to land that heavy rain and very strong winds of Tropical storm force, perhaps minimal Hurricane force on the coast.
GFS model has been pretty consistent so far.. and shows the storm just off Shelburne by Saturday morning, as of now.. it looks like VERY heavy rainfall of 80 to 120mm, combined with winds SUSTAINED near the coast at 70 to 100 km/h! Which is Tropical Storm force, wind Gusts on the coast will likely reach 100-120 km/h nearing Hurricane Strength, so even with this storm offshore, some moderate wind damage to buildings and property is likely, some serious tree damage and power outages. and because of the heavy rain, flooding problems as well, especially with storm surge of 5 to 15 ft above normal.
So we will have to watch this storm over next several days, so stay tuned!
Here now is your forecast, Tonight looking at those clear skies and cool temperatures, winds being light which will create some fog on the coast. Lows in the lower 10's to perhaps even upper 5's far inland.
Tomorrow, lot's of sunshine, clouds building in the afternoon, winds becoming SE 10-20km/h. highs in the low 20's.
