While Gabrielle will swing by well offshore, interaction with a cool front squeezed out more rain showers Friday morning.

Windswept rain from Gabrielle are forecast to spread from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland, Canada late Friday into Saturday.

Friday evening, Canadian air will settle in over the region with clearing, much lower humidity, as well as a gusty breeze. Some people will feel refreshed, while others may mind the sudden chill.

The pattern this weekend could yield some of the lowest temperatures of the season so far for the metro area and the region in general. High temperatures may fail to reach 70 degrees in some locations.
