Few showers today expected across PEI..

Thursday July 13th, 8:30am..  A wee bit cool across PEI this morning as compared to last few days. A change in airmass after that cold frontal passage.  That front is now stalled in an east-west fashion south of NS. A low pressure system is also rippling eastward along this frontal boundary with cloud and showers effecting the southern half of the Maritimes closer the systems. The frontal boundary extends all the way back towards Ontario and a series of weak weather systems will ripple eastward along this boundary over the next few days. Fortunately, the boundary is expected to sag a little further south tonight allowing high pressure to build in from the NW which should clearing skies but quite cool. Sunshine continues into tomorrow as high pressure holds on. On Saturday a weakening low pressure system approaches from New England with some cloud and showers. This system weakens further and pulls away to the east allowing  for some clearing late in the day. Another cold front will be approaching Sunday evening with showers/thundershowers. Conditions will be come quite warm and muggy on Sunday ahead of this front. Indications are that this front will stall basically in a NE-SW fashion across the Maritimes for Monday and Tuesday resulting in unsettled conditions with some cloud and showers. Just too early to tell where it will stall.
