September 10, 2010 — Atlantic Canada has been getting rain all week, and Friday is no anomaly; two high pressure systems could give way to showers until late Saturday.

A rainfall warning is in effect for the Gaspe Bay Peninsula for Friday.

The week following Hurricane Earl has been a wet one for most parts of Atlantic Canada.

And the forecast in not expected to deviate Friday or Saturday.

A rainfall warning is in effect for the Gaspe Bay peninsula. And most of Newfoundland is expected to see at least 1-10 mm of rain throughout the day. Burgeo, N.L. is forecast to get the most rain. Up to 20 mm could fall throughout the day Friday.

The island will be getting two shots of rain throughout the day and into Saturday because it is sandwiched between two highs. The one sitting over the eastern coast is holding the other high from pushing across the province.

So the rain will continue for most of Newfoundland throughout the day. It will also fall in parts of Atlantic Canada throughout the day and into Saturday.

And it has been particularly wet across the Maritimes for most of the week.

On Wednesday, Sydney, Nova Scotia recorded 56.9 mm of rain, while Bathurst, New Brunswick saw 62.4 mm.

Thursday in Newfoundland, most cities saw between 20 and 40 mm of rainfall.

St. Lawrence saw the most rain Thursday, 90 mm.

The soggy conditions come the week after Hurricane Earl tore through the Maritimes, bringing lots of the wet stuff with it, of course.

Sunday, however, will be drier in the Maritimes.
