Sunday May 21st 9:30am.. A strong low pressure system eat of Newfoundland and a ridge of high pressure through Quebec are combining to give the brisk northerly flow across PEI. This wind off the cold waters of the Gulf are making things chilly across PEI. The ridge of high pressure will drift eastward and is expected to crest over PEI later tomorrow. Sunshine and brisk northerly winds today ahead of the ridge. Increasing clouds during the day tomorrow but the winds are also expected to diminish.
