Some sunshine expected next couple days across PEI..

Thursday, November 8th 6:30am.. A trough pf low pressure located over Labrador this morning will weaken as is moves across the Gulf of St Lawrence tonight. Some cloud and an odd shower is  possible from this system. An area of high pressure will approach the Maritimes from the west tomorrow cresting over the island tomorrow evening. Brisk westerly winds will diminish tomorrow as this feature approaches and crosses. Clouds will be on the increase later Friday as a low pressure system develops along the eastern Seaboard Friday night. This system will intensify as it tracks NE along the coast moving into the Bay of Fundy Saturday morning. The storm then turns northward moving across into the Gaspe Bay region after midnight Saturday night. This system will bring another round of rain, strong winds, and mild temps to the island on Saturday. Much cooler air will then flood in across the region behind this system on Sunday on strong W-NW winds. Onshore cloud and flurries will prevail where these W-NW winds blow onshore through Sunday into early Monday. High will crest over the island Monday night into Tuesday morning allowing the winds to drop off to calm. Clouds return early Tuesday as yet another potential storm approaches from the eastern seaboard. This system has all the makings for another significant noreastser for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning with rain and wind the biggest threat. The storm track is still unclear but areas to the SE of the track will see snow changing to rain while those to the NW will see significant snow. Right now, models are hinting tag the storm track will once again be across central/western NB.

Precipitation..  Slight chance of a shower tonight. Rain begins before dawn on Saturday morning ending by midnight giving 15-20 mms.  Flurries possible on Sunday into early Monday. Snow begin Tuesday evening changing to rain by midnight then ending by dawn Wednesday morning. Too early for amounts but could be some accumulations of snow on the ground before the change over so get those winter tires on if you are delaying until snow arrives. Rainfall amounts still unclear as well.

Temperatures.. Normal today and Tomorrow. One day warm-up on Saturday then a sharp cool down Saturday evening will result in a cold Sunday through Tuesday.  Another one-day warm-up on Wednesday followed by cold Thursday Friday and Saturday.
