Showers/flurries expected to develop tonight across PEI..

Sunday, October 21st 8:20am..  A cold front swept across the island overnight ans is now located over Cape Breton island. A low pressure system south of the Maritimes will now ripple NE along his frontal boundary bringing significant amounts of rain to Cape Breton and Newfoundland. PEI should escape this system. Increasing northerly winds will develop later today as the low pressure system moves by. These onshore northerly winds will spread cooler temperatures across the island as well as cloud  flurries/showers. This activity should diminish towards sunrise tomorrow as the winds shifts to a more westerly direction leaving a mix of sun and cloud. Any left over showers or flurries will be across eastern Kings county.  Skies cloud over on Tuesday as an area of low pressure approaches from New England with showers developing late afternoon. The system itself will track NE into the Bay of Fundy Tuesday night then curve northward into the Gaspe Bay region by Wednesday afternoon. The system will then slowly drift across the northern Gulf on Thursday. Initially rain will accompany this feature Tuesday night into Wednesday but then change over to flurries as cooler air invades on Thursday and Friday. The weekend is looking good especially Saturday under high pressure will sunshine and calm winds. Increasing clouds on Sunday as the next system approaches.
