Wednesday, May 30th 7:45am.. Skies cleared across PEI yesterday behind the cold front which swept across the island during the morning hours. High pressure is now approaching from the west and will crest over the island near noon today then move SE. Sunshine will dominate the weather picture as this feature drifts slowly south of the Maritimes. Temperatures will also be on the rise with some of the warmest air of the season expected tomorrow and Friday. Clouds will begin to increase later Friday as a cold front approaches from the west with some showers developing by mid/late evening. The front moves east hinting at a sunny dry weekend into Monday. Weak weather systems then expected to move quickly from west to east across the region for Tuesday and Wednesday with clouds and showers.
Precipitation.. Showers expected Friday evening through Saturday morning giving light amounts although need to watch this as some remnant moisture from Sub tropical system Alberto will get absorbed by this front. At this time, this moisture appears to fall across Quebec before the front reaches the Maritimes but will need to be watched for any changes. This front could being a healthy dose of rain if this tropical moisture falls across the Maritimes. Some showers possible on Tuesday.
