Becoming sunny today across PEI..

Sunday July 9th 9:00am..   The weather pattern remains in an unsettled state as a series of weather systems of varying intensity move across the region. The first is a weak cold front which will move into the Maritimes tonight. This front will then stall and weaken in an east-west line across PEI tomorrow afternoon. A second stronger cold front will then sweep across the region overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning with some steady rain. The front moves southeast of NS allowing high pressure to build in for later Wednesday into early Thursday with some sunshine. Clouds roll back in during the day on Thursday as the next low pressure system approaches from the New England coast. This system now appears to stay well south of NS keeping the bulk of any precip offshore. Yet another in the series of weather systems moves into the Maritimes for Saturday.

Precipitation.. Could be a sprinkle or 2 around this morning but the trend is for dryer. Chance of showers tomorrow afternoon with the weakening cold front. Better chance of rain late Tuesday evening as the second stronger cold front approaches. Rain should end before noon on Wednesday.  Dry for the remainder of Wednesday and Thursday. Friday should just be cloudy with the rain staying offshore. Showers on Saturday.

Temperatures.. Above normal today through Tuesday followed by a few days of normal.

Wind,, Basically a light-brisk SW flow today through Tuesday shifting to NW on Wednesday behind the cold front. Light SW on Thursday, light SE on Friday.

Thunderstorms.. Can’t rule out any thunderstorms for tomorrow and Tuesday night.

Hazards,, None identified.
