Super soggy system, strong winds usher in May across Atlantic Canada

After a well-above-average month for rainfall, much of Atlantic Canada got a decent soaking on the last day of April, with effects lingering into Saturday. Those effects will include strong winds, past their peak by the morning for the Maritimes but still going strong in Newfoundland. Beyond, unsettled conditions look to linger into early May. For a more detailed look at the coming pattern, see below.

INTO SATURDAY: SYSTEM BRINGS WIDESPREAD RAIN, BLUSTERY CONDITIONS

After a soggy Friday, the rain in the Maritimes will be tapering off through the morning hours of Saturday. It lasts a little longer in Newfoundland, though most places will be drying out by the afternoon.

But people in the region should be prepared for some very gusty winds with this system, blowing in the 60-80 km/h range for most coastal areas. They'll be past their peak in the Maritimes Friday morning, though staying stiff, and will persist into Saturday for Newfoundland.

LOOK AHEAD: UNSETTLED CONDITIONS PERSIST INTO EARLY MAY

Beyond the blustery and cold start to the weekend, fair and seasonal conditions will settle into the region for the start of next week.

The next system, however, will track into the Maritimes by Monday night, with a widespread rain expected into Tuesday. Another one follows closely behind, bringing more unsettled weather for the second half of next week.

Temperatures will hover closely, or just slightly below the seasonal mark through the first two weeks of May.
