Monday July 3rd, 8:00am.. Skies cleared overnight across PEI with the passage of a cold front. An upper level disturbance is moving through western NB now and should move across PEI later today with some cloud and showers. A second cold front oriented NE-SW is currently located back through Quebec and is expected to cross PEI just after midnight tonight. Once these 2 systems move through, a large area of high will then dominate the weather across PEI for the Tuesday-Thursday time frame with sunshine although a few pop-up afternoon showers possible on Tuesday. Skies will begin to cloud later Thursday as the next weather system approaches. This will be in the form of a slow moving low and associated frontal system and looks to bring some rain to the region in the Friday-Sunday time frame.
Precipitation.. Some showers are falling across western NB now and should move across PEI today. These showers are associated with an upper level low. A second batch of showers possible tonight with the passage of a cold front. This cold front will usher cooler air for tomorrow which will become quite unstable with the sunshine so looking for afternoon pop-up hit and miss type showers tomorrow. Wednesday and Thursday dry. Showers begin Friday afternoon ending Sunday afternoon.
