Heavy rain event likely for the region over the next couple days..

Friday October 21st 6:45am.. The area of high pressure that gave the sunshine to the island over the past couple days is now centered over central Newfoundland and continues to drift away to the east, meanwhile skies have since clouded over in advance of a complex weather system approaching from the SW. This low pressure system has moved into western NY state and will intensify as it moves northward and is expected to track into western Maine Saturday night then west of NB Sunday morning. Strong winds and heavy rainfall is expected with this system as tropical moisture feeds northward along the eastern seaboard. Much cooler air will flood in behind this system on Sunday with cold showers and possible flurries expected right through Thursday of next week. The storm is expected to move into the northern Gulf of St Lawrence by Monday morning then weaken as it drifts SE towards Cape Breton by Tuesday night. The system will then continue to weaken off the east coast of NS but as mentioned earlier cold showers or even flurries possible right through into Thursday of ne3xt week as this weakening system lingers over the area. High pressure will finally build in over the area by Friday. Long range models are bringing another storm system into the area next weekend.

Precipitation.. Few showers occurred over night last night but the main area of rain should begin early Saturday morning tapering to showers by Saturday evening. This system is expected to bring heavy rain to western areas of the Maritimes 50-80 mms possible through central and western NB/NS. Here on PEI, the heaviest rainfall should occur over western Prince county 30-40 mms possible. Lesser amounts as we move east with 25 mms expected over Charlottetown and points east. Now these amounts are not certain by any means and will change if the track of the storm shifts. Showers or even flurries possible through Thursday of next week as the system lingers over the area.

Temperatures.. Warm up for later today and tomorrow. Much cooler air floods in on Sunday and continues all next week.

Wind.. Increasing SE winds today becoming brisk-strong this afternoon and continues tomorrow shifting to SW on Sunday. Diminishing West winds on MOnday.

Thunderstorms.. Possible thunderstorms associated with this system later today and tomorrow.

Hazards.. Heavy rainfall and brisk-strong SW-W winds over the next couple days.

Watches/warnings.. Rainfall warnings have been issued for parts of NB/NS. Here on PEI, a special weather statement remains in effect but this could be upgraded to a warning if necessary especially for Prince county.

Clouds will begin to thickin up later today as a trough of low pressure approaches from the west. The setup is a bit complicated but this trough will pick up tropical moisture and stream it northward into eastern Canada. 2 low pressure system will merge into one strong system in New England then this new system tracking up through Maine and western NB Saturday night. Heavy rain, strong winds and very warm temps will accompany this system as it tracks by to our west. Much cooler air then floods in behind it for Sunday and cold unsettled showery type weather will then continue into next week with the possibility of flurries during the colder nighttime hours.
