Clouds and showers expected next few days across PEI..

Monday, April 30th 6:55am.. The low pressure system which gave the rain to the island yesterday morning is now located  off St John’s Newfoundland. This system brushed the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton yesterday and gave significant amounts of rain to that area along with some flooding.  An upper air disturbance located vicinity New Hampshire will slowly drift eastward over the next 36 hours passing just south of NS Tuesday afternoon/evening. Varying amounts of clouds and showers will accompany this system. A low pressure system will then approach from the west on Wednesday passing north of the island overnight. More cloud and rain will accompany this system. The associated cold front will then sweep across the island and settle in an east-west fashion across NS. Another area of low pressure will then ripple eastward along this stalled frontal boundary crossing the island late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Skies should finally begin to clear as an area oh high pressure builds in from the west.

Precipitation..  Chance of showers today through Saturday afternoon. Showers will be more frequent or become periods of rain as more organized areas of low pressure move through which will be Wednesday night into Thursday morning then again Friday night into Saturday morning.

Temperatures.. Near normal today and tomorrow. Above normal for Wednesday and Thursday. Friday is looking rather chilly at this point then at or above normal for Saturday through Monday.

Unsettled week of weather ahead for PEI..

Sunday, April 29th 8:30am.. Rain ended yesterday afternoon as a low pressure system tracked NE through NB. Rain has since redeveloped as another low pressure system moves NE just off the US coast. This system is now located  still south of NS and should be just east of Cape Breton by early this evening. An upper air disturbance located in the Great Lakes will also be drifting ESE and is expected to pass just south of NS late Tuesday. Clouds and possible showers will accompany this feature.A frontal system will then become stalled in an east-west fashion across the Maritimes beginning on Wednesday. Several low pressure system will then race eastward along this frontal boundary bringing more cloud and showers. Too early to go into specifics but shaping up to be a cloudy unsettled week of weather ahead for the the Maritimes.

Precipitation.. Rain should continue today ending early this evening giving 5-10 mms.  Showers associated with the upper air disturbance then spreads across the region beginning later tomorrow. This wont be an organized area but rather just spotty shower activity so the Monday-Tuesday time frame wont be complete write-off but rather just cloudy and a chance of showers.  More organized area of rain spreads across the region on Wednesday with the frontal system followed by more organized areas of rain for Thursday and Friday associated with those areas of low pressure racing through.

Temperatures.. Cool today then at or above normal temps expected for the remainder of the period.

Wind.. Light N-NE winds today becoming E-SE tomorrow then W-NW on Tuesday. Light-brisk SW winds on Wednesday and Thursday.

Clouds and Showers on the menu for the next few days across PEI..

Saturday, April 28th 8:15am.. An unsettled period of weather ahead for the Maritimes as a number of weather systems will be effecting the region through the end of next week. First, today we have an area of low pressure located over New England which will move NE tonight passing across northern NB. Cloud and showers will accompany this system. Secondly, tomorrow another area of low pressure will track NE along the US Atlantic coast and should pass just offshore NS later tomorrow afternoon. Again, cloud and showers will accompany this feature but the shower activity should be confined to eastern areas as they will be Closer to this system. The next system too effect the region will be an upper air disturbance which will be spinning over the Great Lakes over the weekend. This system will drift SE passing just south of the Maritimes Tuesday afternoon. Again cloud and a few showers will accompany this feature. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some thunderstorm activity associated as well.  A frontal system will then become stalled in an east -west fashion across the region beginning on Wednesday. Cloud and showers will accompany this system but more importantly, several low areas of low pressure will race eastward along this frontal system through the end of next week each bringing more cloud and showers. So not much n the way of sun over the next 7 days or so for the island.

Precipitation.. Basically showers expected through the entire period. Not a steady rain but off and on showers. Monday evening through morning loos to be the driest period. Rainfall amounts should not be too significant.

Temperatures.. At or above normal temperatures will continue but not as warm as late due lots of cloud cover.

Wind.. Light-brisk SW flow today shifting to E-NE tomorrow as that ocean system passes est of NS later in the day. Winds then shift back to the SE-SW Sunday through Saturday.

Thunderstorms.. Very slight chance on Tuesday but if any do occur then they should be found over the southern Maritimes..

Some sun possible today across PEI..

Friday, April 27th 6:00am..  The low pressure system which gave the cloud and rain to the island yesterday is now located in the northern Gulf of St Lawrence and continues to drift NE towards Labrador. A weak ridge of high pressure will now briefly build in over the region allowing for some clearing but it will be short lived as the next area of low pressure will be approaching from the SW. This system will also track NE across NB late tonight into tomorrow giving more clouds and showers.  Sunday continues to be cloudy  with chance of showers as yet another weak area of low pressure move NE just off the coast of NS. Unsettled weather continues Monday and Tuesday as a cool upper air disturbance drifts SE across the Maritimes passing south of NS early Tuesday morning. Again some cloud and chance of showers will accompany this system as well as a brief cool down in temperatures. The long range outlook beginning on Wednesday is hinting at a storm track setting up in an west-east fashion right across the Maritimes with several system racing through. Too early to go into details but looks like the unsettled weather will continue into Friday..

Precipitation.. The rain has basically ended for now, Today should be dry. Showers redevelop overnight tonight and continue into tomorrow morning. Another round of rain for Sunday morning then possible showers for Monday through Friday as several systems effect the region.  Best chance for some sunshine appears to be later Monday or early Tuesday.

Temperatures.. The run of above normal temps will continue but wont be as warm as of late due to more cloud cover. Tuesday appears to be the coolest day with temps expected to briefly drop back to normal.

Wind.. Basically a light-brisk SE-SW flow across the region until end of next week.

Thunderstorms.. None expected although watching Tuesday as the upper air disturbance moves through. Cool air aloft and maybe some sunshine could lead to some development.
