While the beginning of the week will stay cloudy and cool, Wednesday night another system will move in from the south. It doesn’t appear like the impact will be significant in the city. South of the Trans-Canada Highway rainfall amounts may be more than trace amounts.
Thursday there should be some clearing but even once we see the sun again, temperatures this week are going to be staying well below normal.
Fall is here.
