Repetitive weather patterns ahead

In the movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray plays a weatherman who is stuck in a loop, seemingly doomed to repeat the same day of his life over and over again.

In a meteorological sense, this weekend will seem like Groundhog Day, as the same weather repeats itself day after day. The low pressure system that brought us a drenching rainfall earlier this week is forecast to park itself off the coast of the Canadian Maritimes today, and stay there for the foreseeable near future. This setup will result in a light but steady northerly wind, high temperatures in the low-to-mid 40s °F, and a slight chance of rain or snow showers every day. This pattern is expected to persist at least through the middle of next week.
