The cold front will be very slow to move through and expect cloud and showers to linger into early Thursday but expect clearing skies as high pressure begins to build in from the NW.

Warm weekend ahead for PEI..

Saturday May 21st 7:30am... A area of high pressure centered south of NS continues to effect the Maritimes with generally clear skies and light west winds. This feature will drift off to the east today, meanwhile a cold front oriented NE-SW is approaching from the NW but is expected to weaken as it approaches the Maritimes then stall over the region tomorrow. Cloud and showers will accompany this feature. An area of low pressure is then expected to move off the US mid Atlantic tomorrow as well then track NE passing just east of the Gulf of Maine. The Low and whats left of the front will drift off to the east late Sunday in to Monday allowing for some clearing as a ridge of high pressure begins to build in from the west. This clearing will only be brief as an upper air disturbance and its associated surface reflection move northward along the US coast later Tuesday. The low will become cut-off or separated form the steering upper air currents and as a result this low will basically drift or meander over New England/Maritimes right though the reminder of the week right into at least Monday. So an extended period of unsettled weather ahead for PEI..

Precipitation...Showers should spread across the island later this evening ending before dawn tomorrow. Showers then redevelop on Monday. A brief dry spell on Tuesday then showers begin again on Wednesday continue right through into early next week. It shouldn’t be completely overcast but rather just unsettled with sunny breaks thrown in.

Temperatures.. Above normal for today and tomorrow. Brief Cool down on Monday then warm again for Tuesday through Friday. Cool down begins on Saturday..

Wind.. Light SW today increasing to light-brisk tonight then back to light SW tomorrow. Winds shift to the east on Monday, SE on Tuesday then South on Wednesday.

Thunderstorms.. Can’t rule out a rumble later today especially for NB. Another chance on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Hazards.. Wet roads beginning this evening.

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

Sunny and warm tomorrow across PEI. Showers by evening.

Friday May 20 8:45pm..  An area of high pressure passing south of the Maritimes this afternoon will continue to give mainly clear skies to the island tonight. Things then start to get interesting. First a weakening cold front is dropping down from the NW  and should spread some cloud and showers across the island by later tomorrow night. This front will actually stall over the region on Sunday as a low pressure system moves off the US coast near Virginia. This system as mentioned will move NE into the Gulf of Maine by Sunday afternoon. A cold upper trough will also develop along the east coast and meander over the region well into next week keeping an extended period of cloudy unsettled weather across the Maritimes. Right now the long range is hint9ng at Friday being sunny and dry then more wet weather moves in for next weekend.

Precipitation.. Generally dry tonight in to tomorrow. Showers should begin tomorrow evening then basically cloud and a chance of showers right through Thursday if next week. So an extended period of unsettled weather ahead.

Temperatures.. Should be at or above normal through Thursday. Cool on Friday.

Wind.. Light westerly tonight increasing to light-brisk tomorrow then shifting to SW on Sunday. Winds shift again to the east on Monday then back to southerly on Tuesday. Brisk southerlies on Wednesday, light-brisk SW on Thursday.

Thunderstorms. Some thunderstorm activity did develop today across parts of NB. Can’t rule out more for tomorrow. There will be a risk of a rumble or two especially across NB during the first few days of next week as well.

Hazards.. Wet roads tomorrow night.

A few showers possible tonight and tomorrow across PEI.

Thursday May 19th 4:40pm..  A ridge of high pressure will remain stalled over the Maritimes tonight and tomorrow giving lots of sunshine, light winds and warm temps. Cold air aloft however associated with an upper level low crossing the region is making things unstable so expected some cloud and showers tonight and again tomorrow. A cold front approaching from the NW will bring another threat of showers/thundershowers to the region later Saturday. Things don’t get much better on Sunday as this front weakens over the Maritimes. The long range shows a low pressure system coming off the US mid Atlantic coast then drifting northwards towards the Maritimes. This cut-off system will basically stall or meander off New England right through at least Friday of next week resulting in a prolonged period of cloud and showers.

Precipitation… Few showers tonight and tomorrow associated with the upper low crossing the region. Few more showers Saturday evening in to Sunday associated with the cold front. Then more cloud and showers all next week associated with the cut-off low over New England.

Temperatures...At or above normal through Thursday.. Cool down on Friday..

Winds… Light-brisk SW tonight through Sunday shifting to easterly on Monday..

Thunderstorms.. Can’t rule out a rumble tonight tomorrow and Saturday.

Hazards.. None identified..

Warmer weather returns to PEI..

Wednesday May 18th 9:00am..The 2 systems that have plagued the region over the past few days bringing cloudy cool damp weather are finally moving away to the NE. High pressure at the surface is now building in from the west and will dominate the weather into late Saturday but an upper air disturbance is expected cross the Maritimes on Thursday and Friday resulting in some cloud and possible showers. A cold front will be approaching from the NW later Saturday with more cloud and chance of showers. Low pressure is then expected to develop to the south off the coast of Virginia then move NE Saturday night then move NE towards NS. This system will bring rain to NS Sunday night. Ridge of high pressure briefly builds in for Monday night into early Tuesday . The unsettled weather will return later Tuesday as another low pressure system comes off the US eastern seaboard. This system will “cut-off” from the upper flow and as a result will stall or linger off the east coast all next week. So looks like an extended period of unsettled weather beginning Saturday night across PEI.

Precipitation..Chance of showers developing this afternoon/evening as some rather cool air still left over from the departing system to the NE. Another chance of afternoon showers tomorrow and Friday as another cool upper air disturbance crosses the region. Showers develop later Saturday as the cold front sweep through then possible showers for eastern PEI later Sunday into Monday as the low moves just south of NS. Dry for Monday night into Tuesday morning then Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look cloudy with showers.

Temperatures.. At or above normal through the entire period.

Wind.. Light westerly today, very light southerly tomorrow, Light-brisk SW Friday through Sunday.

Thunderstorms.. Conditions becoming more favorable on Friday and Saturday.

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

Hazards.. None expected..
