Cloud and chance of a few showers expected today across PEI.

Sunday, October 7th 8:00am.. Clouds invaded the island as a weak low and frontal system approached from the west. This system is basically located right over PEI now and will move slowly SE today accompanied by a Few showers. High pressure will briefly try and build in tonight as the front moves further away and is expected to crest over the island tomorrow evening. That front that moves south will begin to move north again later tomorrow night some associated rain by Tuesday afternoon. The front then stalls in an east-west fashion across the Maritimes on Wednesday maintaining cloud and shower activity. Strong low pressure then ripples eastward along the stationary front, moving across the region Thursday night/Friday morning with significant rain. Things then stay interesting as the remnants of tropical storm 14 will be moving NE near Cape Cod by Friday morning. The exact track will be governed by a cold front that will sweep across the Maritimes Thursday night. Right now look like the tropical system will stay SE of our region.
