The warm and muggies continue into next week across PEI.

Sunday July 16th 9:45am..  A weakening cold front oriented NE-SW will be approaching from Quebec then stall as it crosses PEI later today. This front will be the focus of some cloud and showers/thundershowers especially up west. Tomorrow, a weak area of low pressure will ripple eastward along this frontal boundary and will actually cause the front to reverse and retreat back to the north as a warm front. Again this will serve to ficus some cloud and another round of showers/thundershowers. Whats left of the weak low then crosses the Maritimes on Tuesday with a continuations of some cloud showers/thundershowers. Wednesday should be sunny under high pressure then another cold front begins to sweep eastward across the region on Thursday with another round of cloud showers/thundershowers. Yet another cold front crosses the area on Friday with more cloud and showers.

Precipitation.. Chance of showers later today as the weak cold front approaches.and again tomorrow  as the front retreats back north. Another chance of showers on Tuesday as the weak low pressure system pushes through. Best chance for rain appears to be Thursday and Friday as a couple of stronger cold fronts move through.

Temperatures.. Warm and muggy next 5 days with a cool down back to more normal conditions expected to start on Friday.

Wind...Basically  a light-brisk SW flow across the island until Friday when a shift to the NW is expected.

Thunderstorms..  Risk of a thundershowers later today, and again tomorrow.

Hazards..possibility of lightning activity later today and tomorrow.

Watches/warnings.. None for PEI at this time.

Space.. A solar flare occurred a couple of days ago and the resulting CME has impacted the earth. The CME actually hit the earth about 7 hours ago (2-3 am ADST). This could spark some northern lights tonight if the solar activity continues. So if the skies are relatively clear tonight, go outside and find a dark spot and look north.
