Slow clearing expected today across PEI..

Saturday May 27th 8:50am.. A low pressure system tracked across southern NS yesterday and is now located well south of Newfoundland. This system brought generally 20-35 mms rain with the higher amounts across Queens and Prince counties. This system continues to pull away to the east but clearing will be slow. A ridge of high pressure then builds in from the west tonight cresting over the island tomorrow before noon. Should get some sunshine and light winds with this feature. A cold front is then expected to drop down from the north tomorrow evening bringing some cloud and chance of showers. This front will then stall over NS then begin to move northward again as a warm front later Monday with more cloud and chance of showers. Unsettled weather  is expected to continue through Thursday as a series of disturbances rotate around a main low pressure system on northern Quebec. Friday is looking dry followed by more unsettled weather into next weekend.

Precipitation.. Could be some lingering showers or drizzle this morning but the trend will be for improvement. Few showers possible again later tomorrow which could basically then extend off and on right through Thursday.

Temperatures.. At or below normal today through Tuesday. Slightly above normal Wednesday through Saturday.

Wind.. Diminishing NE winds this morning dropping off to calm tonight then light SE winds tomorrow. Winds shift back to the NE for Monday.

Thunderstorms.. nothing expected at this time.

Hazards.. Wet driving conditions this morning.. Higher than normal water levels during the high tide cycle over the next few days as the highest tides of the year are currently occurring.
