The good news is it will be another nice day today and again on Thursday.

But the bad news is after that we’re in for some rain and Environment Canada has issued a tropical cyclone advisory for all of Atlantic Canada for the weekend.

The tropical cyclone statement currently in effect says that Environment Canada is analysing the development of tropical storm Arthur.

The storm is east of Florida and may play a role in this weekend’s weather as it is expected to grow to hurricane intensity.

“At this point the likelihood is for an offshore track which would lead to a primarily ‘rain event’ over land,” reads the statement.

However, Environment Canada is not ruling out a direct impact.

Keep checking www.weather.gc.ca for updates.

In the meantime, it will be sunny with some cloud and a high of 25 in Corner Brook today. The southwest wind will help to keep things feeling little cooler.

Thursday will also be sunny with some cloud and a temperature of 27.

Conditions will be much the same in Deer Lake, but being a little more inland the temperature will be higher at 29 today and 31 on Thursday.

Port aux Basques will also see some sun, but lower temperatures at 18 today and 20 Thursday.

The outlook for Friday, Saturday and Sunday is rain for all areas.

The Weather Network is forecasting a sunny day in Stephenville today with a high of 23. Thursday will be much the same with a high of 24. And that area might not see rain until Saturday.

And the temperature in Rocky Harbour should get up to 24 today. It’ll be around 22 on Thursday and there’s rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.
