***Just a quick note. Next week I'm going to be filling for Colleen Jones on the CBC Morning show... on top of my regular duties for Here and Now. As a result I likely won't have much time to update the blog... if at all... just thought I'd give you the head's up.***
Alright, there's lots going on this weekend... George St. Festival, Great Big Sea's big show out in Gander... and lots more.
So what's the weather going to be like?
That wind will be in from the Northeast again tomorrow... and it will be pretty gusty as well... 30-50 km/h. As a result if you're on the Avalon, The Bonavista Peninsula, the Gander area, the Grand Falls-Windsor area, the Twillingate and Bay of Exploits area... along the Northern Peninsula... and up the Coast of Labrador.... expect a pretty cloudy start to the weekend with a good chance of light showers and drizzle throughout the day. The further inland you go towards the Southwest... the more sunshine you will see.
Corner Brook, Stephenville, Deer Lake, Gros Morne Park can all expect a really nice Saturday... a little cool... but a fair amount of sunshine. Port Aux Basques... you folks will see cloudy with sunny periods.
As I mentioned in Labrador, the coast is cloudy and wet... Happy Valley Goose Bay has a good chance of showers in the morning... with sunshine breaking through in the afternoon. Mainly cloudy in Labrador City.
Sunday will be a better day. The winds will be a bit lighter... 15-30 km/h... although still in from the North. So expect a mainly cloudy day along the Northeast Coast... the Northern Peninsula and up the Coast of Labrador... but the sunshine should certainly be poking through the clouds more often. Further inland... an even better day than Saturday with those clouds not pushing as far inland. Again, The Corner Brook, Deer Lake, Gros Morne Park park area down towards the Stephenville area will have a really nice day. Port Aux Basques again cloudy with sunny periods.
Alright before I leave you.... an official explanation on how this amazing sqaure cloud... which was spotted out in Central Newfoundland a few weeks ago... was formed.
The "square" cloud is in fact a mid to high level cloud that possibly may have started as a contrail (a thick one) and that cloud moisture has drifted perpendicular to the direction of the original aircraft.. making for a "straight" edged cloud.
All the credit goes to CBC Meteorologist Claire Martin for cracking the case on this one : )
Have a Great Weekend!!!!
