Periods of snow or flurries expected today across PEI..

Friday, April 20 9:00am.. Rain developed yesterday evening across the island as a low pressure system approached from the US mid Atlantic coast. The rain changed over to snow just after midnight as temperatures cooled. This weather system is now located just east of Cape Breton Island and will continue to move away to the NE today then stall over Newfoundland for the weekend. This will result in a cloudy, cool brisk NW-N wind off the open waters of cold Gulf. A large area of high pressure will be approaching from the west and should pass just south of the Maritimes on Tuesday morning. The clouds will slowly dissipate Sunday night leading to a warmup on Monday. A warm southerly flow will then develop on Tuesday allowing temps to climb above normal through mid week. Clouds will be on the increase on Wednesday as the next weather system approaches from the Great Lakes. This system is expected to track NE along the St Lawrence River Valley passing north of the region Thursday night resulting in a rain event. So a cloudy cool weekend followed by some sunshine early next week then a warm rain bu Thursday.

Precipitation.. Generally about 3-4 mms rain followed by 3-4 cms snow fell across Kings and Queens counties overnight. Less up west being further from the storm center. Periods of light snow today will taper to flurries later today. Few flurries possible tomorrow. Only slight accumulations as most new snow should melt. Rain is expected to develop Thursday morning and continue into Friday.

Temperatures.. Remaining cool today through the weekend. Slow moderation back to normal for Monday followed by above normal Tuesday through Friday.

Wind... Brisk NW-N wind developing this afternoon and will continue tonight. Light-brisk NW winds over the weekend becoming light W-NW for Monday. Southerlies develop on Tuesday.

Rain/snow and cool temps expected across PEI today/tonight/tomorrow.

Thursday, April 19th 10:45am… Good morning.. Been out of the loop weather wise for the past 7 days or so, although I was watching the weather from the beach in Punta Cana. Time to get caught up.. An elongated trough of low pressure oriented east-west is located just north of PEI and will give cloud and a few showers to the island today as it moves NE towards Newfoundland. Another area of low pressure is developing now along the US mid Atlantic coast vicinity Virginia. This system will move NE passing just east of NS overnight tonight then into Newfoundland tomorrow. Unfortunately, PEI will be on the cool side of this system so initially looking at rain developing this evening then changing over to snow as temps cool down. A trough stretching back to the West will maintain cloud and flurries for tomorrow as the system pulls away. Onshore NW-N winds will also continue to give some cloud and flurries into Saturday but improving conditions expected though Sunday as  a large area of high pressure approaches. Unfortunately cool NW winds will continue to keep the temps below normal until the center of high pressure moves to the east of the region later Tuesday but sunshine is expected. Clouds will begin to spread across the region on Wednesday as the next weather system approaches with rain developing Wednesday night.

Precipitation.. Few showers today from the system passing to our north becoming periods of rain later this afternoon as the next system approaches from the SW.  Rain will change over to snow before dawn tomorrow then tapering to flurries tomorrow afternoon. Snowfall amounts in the 5 cm range. Flurries may persist into Saturday. Basically dry conditions then expected Sunday through Tuesday. Rain develops late Wednesday evening and persists through Thursday. Showers continue into Friday.

Temperatures.. Near normal today then cooler air returns tomorrow. A very slow moderation in temperatures begin on Saturday but remaining below normal. Temperatures should be back to normal by Tuesday then above normal for Wednesday through Friday.

Wind.. Light SW-W winds today becoming E-NE tonight increasing to brisk northerly tomorrow. Light-brisk NW winds then continue Saturday through Monday. Warmer SW winds develop on Tuesday.

Hazards.. Wet roads today becoming slush/snow covered by dawn tomorrow especially the less traveled rural roads.

Sunshine expected next few days across PEI..

Tuesday, April 10th 7:30am.. An area of high pressure passing south of NS will maintain sunshine and light winds across the island today. Clouds will spread across the region overnight tonight as a low pressure system passes well south and east of the Maritimes tomorrow morning. Skies should clear during the day as another ridge of high pressure crosses the island. Clouds will once again spread across the region overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning as a weakening system moves through. Skies will remain cloudy as a more organized low pressure system approaches from Quebec. This system is expected to track northern NB on Friday morning then north of PEI in the afternoon. Mild air will ensure a rain event for the island. The associated cold front sweeps through Friday night then stalls in an east-west fashion across Maine and southern NS. Cool temps will remain anchored across the island through the weekend with this front stalled to our south. This front begins to lift north again on Monday as a low pressure system approaches from the west with snow beginning early. The snow will change over to rain as the milder air returns.

Precipitation.. Fairly dry next few days. Rain should occur Thursday night into Friday morning. Flurries on Monday should change to rain later in the day as temps climb.

Temperatures.. Will be slowly inching up over the next few days peaking on Friday followed by a cold weekend. Another warm-up begins on Monday.

Sunshine but cold conditions expected today across PEI..

Monday, April 9th 9:00am..  Looks more like mid winter outside today rather than early April! A low pressure system developed off Cape Hatteras over the weekend and intensified while tracking NE towards Newfoundland. This system passed east of NS yesterday evening and is now located over central Newfoundland. The storm dumped significant snow across eastern NS and Cape Breton with 20 cms reported in Sydney and 15-20 through Halifax. Here on PEI, I am still waiting for some measurements to come in but looks like 7 cms reported at the airport. I recorded 3 here in the Bonshaw area while no snow was recorded in Wellington. Skies cleared quickly overnight as the storm pulled away. High pressure will now dominate the region through Thursday but a couple of systems moving through will give some cloud and flurries. The first of which is a storm system passing well east of NS on Wednesday which may spread some cloud and chance of a flurrie. The second system is an upper air disturbance moving across the region on Thursday giving some cloud and chance of a flurrie or shower. On Friday, a low pressure system will track NE along the St Lawrence River valley. This system will usher in milder air resulting in a rain event for Friday. The associated cold front will stall in an east-west fashion somewhere over the Maritimes making for an unsettled weekend. with rain and/or snow depending on exactly where this front lies.

Precipitation… Dry conditions today and tomorrow. Could see a flurrie on Wednesday especially down east. Showers on Thursday becoming periods of rain Friday morning. Rain or snow on the weekend.

Temperatures.. Cold today, a little warmer tomorrow but still below normal. A slow warm up through Wednesday and Thursday. Friday will be the warmest day then below normal again for the weekend.

Wind.. Diminishing NW winds today, light westerly tomorrow then southerly on Wednesday. Brisk southerlies for Thursday and Friday.

Hazards... Drifting snow today will keep rural roads tricky especially in Queens and Kings counties.

Watches/warnings.. None for PEI at this time…

Forecast..

Today.. Clear, brisk NW winds diminishing giving drifting snow. Highs -2

Tonight.. Clear, light W-NW winds, lows -4

Tomorrow.. Sunny, light west winds, highs +2
