Friday July 14th 8:45am.. A frontal trough draped east-west continues to be stalled south of NS this morning, meanwhile high pressure centered in central Quebec will drift eastward today promising sunshine and light winds to the island today. The highs drifts off to the east tomorrow but should still give ample sunshine to the region. Clouds will spread across the island late tomorrow as a weather disturbance in the Great Lakes approaches. This system should weaken considerably before it reaches the Maritimes but still looking at cloudy skies and chance of a shower. Sunshine should return on Sunday with high pressure just off the coast. A cold front will begin to approach the Maritimes from the NW on Monday. This front is then expected to stall over the region and eventually dissipate over the following few day resulting in unsettled weather through mid week.
Precipitation.. The dry spell continues across PEI. Only slight amounts of rain are expected through next week, with a chance of showers on Saturday into early Sunday. Chance of a shower again on Monday with the cold front. Difficult to go into details for the Tuesday-Thursday time frame. The front will be weakening but could still serve to focus some pop-up afternoon showers giving local downpours, so lets go for just a slim chance of isolated pop-up afternoon showers through mid week.
Wind.. Light SW winds today through MOnday shifting to northerly Monday night with the cold frontal passage then back to the SW for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Temperatures.. Warm and muggy conditions expected through the period.
Thunderstorms.. Can’t rule out some afternoon thunderstorms developing but these will be isolated.
