Tuesday 8:45pm An area of high pressure located south of the Maritimes this evening will continue to slip away to the southeast tonight and tomorrow, meanwhile a cold front will approach the region from the west tomorrow and should cross PEI near noon on Thursday. High pressure will build in over the area for Friday then a frontal boundary will set-up along the east coast during the weekend with several waves of low pressure riding along this boundary into the Maritimes giving an unsettled end to the week. A couple of the computer models are developing a strong low pressure area over the region on Monday giving another threat of heavy rain. Details on this as the picture becomes clearer.
