Warm today, return to showers tomorrow across PEI.

Monday May 22nd 9:50am.. NW winds have finally diminished across PEI as a north-south ridge of high pressure approaches. This feature should crest over PEI later this afternoon. Clouds have already spread across the island in advance of a weak frontal system associated with a low pressure system in the Great Lakes. This occluded front will cross the island tomorrow afternoon with some showers. Weak high pressure will then build back in later Wednesday and hold through Thursday with some sunshine. Things are beginning to get interesting  on Friday and Saturday as an area of low pressure moves across the Maritimes. This feature has the potential to dump significant amounts of rain but details on where and how much still unclear.
