A low pressure system that's been hovering over Atlantic Canada brought heavy rain and cooler temperatures to some areas this week.
“Eastern Canada was under a stagnant pattern,” says Rob Davis, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Therefore, many areas saw the same persistent weather. And that translated into rain for the Maritimes.”
Several communities in Nova Scotia were under a rainfall warning on Tuesday and Wednesday, including Halifax, where over 75 mm of rain was recorded. Meanwhile, places like Greenwood saw closer to 40 mm.
“The rainfall warning ended by Wednesday afternoon, and the rain will continue to ease across the Maritimes,” explains Gerald Cheng, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. “The low pressure system however, will continue to push east into Newfoundland where rain will persist through the evening and overnight hours.”
