Wednesday 5:45pm A north-south trough of low pressure across western PEI late this afternoon will continue to move east tonight then stall over the eastern regions over the next few days. Strong southerly winds were not quite a strong as I had anticipated but this same system brought many power related issues to many areas in New England. Winds will diminish this evening as the trough crosses. High pressure will try and build in form the west early next week then another cold front swings though the region mid week.
