June 18, 2010 — Forget spring. It seems that summer has arrived a few days early in the Maritimes and residents aren't complaining. In the video to the left, The Weather Network's Shelley Steeves finds out how people will 'beat the heat.'
Sunshine, mainly clear skies and warm temperatures. That's what's on tap for people in the Maritimes today.
After what has been a fairly wet and cool spring in Atlantic Canada, the last few days of the season are ending on a high note across the region.
“We have high pressure in place over the Maritimes,” says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist here at The Weather Network. “It's certainly a warm and humid end to the work week.”
Still, it might not be all beaches and barbecues across the Maritimes this weekend. With the heat and humidity comes a risk of thunderstorms.
“The same cold front cutting across northern Ontario today and tomorrow will sweep over Atlantic Canada on Sunday,” explains Vettese. “So thunderstorms are possible, especially through New Brunswick.”
