CORNER BROOK: Rain, wind and snow serve up weekend travel woes

It’s quiet now but… I’m watching a fast-moving system that’s tracking up the St Lawrence River. The leading warm front will bring rising temperatures tonight with rain and gusty south winds. The trailing cold front will race in behind it with a wind shift to the northwest and falling temperatures through the day Saturday; where that cold, dry northwest wind blows onshore, watch for squalls to develop. Sunday will be quite fair, at least until the end of the afternoon. Rain will move in from west to east ahead of a rainmaker. Behind it, another wind shift to the northwest with falling temperatures on Monday. It’s early, but something “white” seems to be brewing for the end of next week… stay tuned!
