A perfect day to hit the beach

August 18, 2010 — It will be another sunny and seasonal summer day across the Maritimes as the cold front pushes into Newfoundland.

It's the weather most Maritimers have been used to this summer. The skies have cleared and residents can expect yet another sunny, dry and seasonal day.

The same system that brought severe thunderstorms to Ontario and Quebec pushed east into the Maritimes on Tuesday. A thunderstorm risk stretched across all three provinces and brought periods of rain and lightning to some areas. Now, as a new day begins, high pressure continues to dominate once again.

There's been no shortage of summer-like conditions across the provinces this year giving residents any excuse to get outside. The month of July in particular brought several stretches of warm, dry and sunny weather.

Newfoundland has also seen some pleasant conditions this season, but now the cold front has moved in there.

“The area can expect some on and off showers all day today and a couple of rumbles of thunder aren't out of the question either,” says The Weather Network's meteorologist Rob Davis.
