Weekly Outlook: March 6-12, 2023

Much of the upcoming week will feature quiet weather, a welcome change from the active pattern we’d had over the past few weeks.

The week starts off with high pressure providing us sunshine and seasonable temperatures, but low pressure will continue to intensify in Atlantic Canada, producing gusty winds across the region for the next few days. A weak system will move out of the Great Lakes on Tuesday, likely passing south and west of the region, but it may be close enough for a few rain or snow showers. Wednesday and Thursday will feature intervals of clouds and sunshine with a few rain or snow showers along with gusty winds as disturbances rotate around low pressure south of Nova Scotia. By Friday, high pressure builds in with more sunshine and lighter winds.

Unfortunately, next weekend does not look as quiet. Most of the models are showing the potential for a storm system to impact the region next weekend, but they differ considerably on the details, including timing, placement, strength, and precipitation type. Hopefully, things will become clearer later this week.

The models all have different ideas for what will happen next Saturday, Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
