A ridge of high pressure will keep the weather quiet and relatively calm across the bulk of the Province overnight. The same ridge will generally keep things sunny and mild for Friday, however, a few showers will skirt into Labrador and western Newfoundland at various times during the day. The next big weather-maker, which is a deepening area of low pressure, will arrive Saturday and will not depart until later Sunday. This low will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to much of the Island from Saturday mid-morning through Sunday.
A follow-up low could bring another bout of lighter rain on Monday. Temperatures will remain relatively mild through Saturday, with cooler air arriving Sunday or Monday. Highs dip into the single digits by early next week Island-wide.
Meanwhile, in Labrador, expect a quieter weekend, but a turn toward cooler temperatures by Sunday. In fact, by early next week highs will only be in the lower to middle single digits, and flurries will be widespread. This is a sure sign of the season.
