Unsettled... but for how long?

That's a very good question... and the answer is a little foggy at this point.

Now, I know you folks in Labrador are living it up right now. It hit 30 degrees for the first time this year in Happy Valley Goose Bay and Labrador City today. However you folks are going to be seeing things turn cloudy through Thursday.

That will put the whole Province under the same pattern which is... unsettled. There's a big trough over Eastern North America is helping to trap Low pressure systems in the area. And not only that, there's also area of High pressure developing over Greenland which is helping to keep them here. It's not a full out blocking pattern... but it's far from a nice zonal flow which keeps things moving.


As a result, the next 5 days look pretty Cloudy with showers off and on. There won't be any heavy heavy rains, but spotty showers which come and go. That's the forecast really, until at least next Monday.

So for next week, what will happen? Will the same pattern continue to bring the Clouds and shower to the Province?

Well, it depends on which forecasting model you look at. The Canadian model is showing the same unsettled pattern holding right through next Friday... JULY 3RD!!! However, the American model has been running with a much sunnier solution. It's thinking that the area of High pressure developing over Greenland will actually sink South and clear us out early next week.


It's a tough call. Mostly because both models have been pretty consistant with their thinking over the past few days. I'll keep an eye on things and let you know when I know.

One thing is certain, things will be Cloudy and showery right through Sunday in Newfoundland and Labrador.
