Saturday, November 17th, 10:15am.. A low pressure system tracked NE along the Atlantic coast of NS yesterday evening and is now located over southeastern Newfoundland. This system brought 15-20 cms snow across island with the higher amounts reported across central and western PEI. A ridge of high pressure currently across Ontario will drift east and is expected to crest over the island tomorrow night. Several weak systems will then track across the region next week giving cloud and flurries or periods of snow. So the cold unsettled weather conditions will continue.
Precipitation.. Few flurries today. Snow Monday afternoon giving 5 cms, Tuesday dry, Snow Wednesday giving 5 cms, flurries on Thursday. Friday right now is a big question mark. Could be a significant snow event but for now will just wait and see how the models handle it over the next couple days..
Temperatures.. Below normal expected at least through all next week. No warm-up in sight.
Wind.. Don’t see and wind events until the potential storm on Friday. Very light westerlies today and tomorrow turning southerly on Monday then back to NW on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday.
Hazards.. Poor driving conditions on snow covered roads but sunshine today should allow for the salt to work and melting. Chance of light accumulating snow on Monday.
Watches/warnings.. None for PEI at this time.
