Unsettled weather expected across PEI next few days..

Saturday, July 21st 8:00am. The high pressure system that gave the sunshine to the island over the past few days has shifted east and now located well offshore. The high will then stall to the southeast near Bermuda for the next week-10 days. The “Bermuda High” results in a sustained southwesterly flow of warm muggy air across the Maritimes while keeping low pressure stalled in the Great Lakes. How does this effect the Maritimes? This pattern will result in a prolonged period of unsettled as the various weather systems skirt by overhead or to the west.  The first is today… A small ocean low pressure system has been slowly drifting northward over the past couple days and is now located just east of NS. This system is giving cloud  to the eastern half of the Maritimes with rain pushing into Cape Breton. A few stray showers could move across eastern PEI. Another low pressure system located along the eastern seaboard vicinity Cape Hatteras will also move northward pushing through New England tomorrow morning then into the Montreal/Ottawa area tomorrow afternoon. This system will give cloud to western areas with chance of showers and thundershowers. Next week will be more of the same as various weather systems will push through.. So basically a warm muggy cloudy unsettled week of weather ahead with some sun, some cloud some showers/thundershowers.

Precipitation.. Chance of showers basically for the entire period. Tuesday and Wednesday looks like we are between systems and could be dry..

Temperatures.. At or above normal for the period..

Wind.. Light-brisk SW wind through-out.

Thunderstorms.. Could be a risk of thundershowers for the entire period.

Hazards.. Wet driving conditions in any rain… Risk of lightning.

Watches/warnings.. None for PEI at this time..

Sunshine and light winds expected again today across PEI..

Friday, July 20th 6:30am.. Sunshine and light winds will prevail today across the island as an area of high pressure crests over the region. Clear skies will continue into the overnight hours tonight as this feature slides east and anchors itself in the western Atlantic ocean. Things then start to get interesting.. The flow around this stalled high pressure area will result in a prolonged period of SW winds which will allow for warm and muggy conditions to return to the Maritimes. Several areas of low pressure (starting tomorrow) will then lift NE across the Maritimes bringing unsettled conditions basically for the entire period. So enjoy today.. tomorrow starts a prolonged period of cloudy, warm, humid, showery, thundery weather..Next week won’t be a complete write-off. Basically sun-cloud-showers

Precipitation.. Showers begin tomorrow afternoon followed by the threat of showers right through until next weekend.  Some of these showers could be heavy at times due to the tropical air involved

Temperatures.. Basically above normal temps expected this period.. The elevated humidity starts tomorrow..

Wind..  Light-brisk SW wind expected all period.

Thunderstorms.. Risk of storms starts tomorrow and basically continues all next week. Some of these storms could be strong/severe and will need to be watched.

Sunshine and light winds expected next few days across PEI..

Thursday, July 19th 6:25am.. A cold front swept across the region yesterday bringing cloud showers and a few thundershowers.

High pressure will now dominate the Maritimes today through Saturday with sunshine and ,light winds. Clouds will be n the increase on Sunday as a weak area of tropical moisture lifts north into Atlantic Canada. The long range is hinting at a prolonged period of warm humid unsettled weather as high pressure anchors itself in the western Atlantic ocean and low pressure over the Great Lakes. This will result in a SW flow of hot humid unstable air from the deep south with cloud showers and possible thundershowers every day next week. So enjoy the next few days…..

Unsettled weather expected next few days across PEI..

Sunday, July 15th 8:15am.. Mainly cloudy skies are expected today ahead of a trough of low pressure approaching from the west. This system is bringing showers and isolated thundershowers to eastern Townships of Quebec this morning and expected this activity to mover across Maine and into NB later today. Tomorrow, this system will be working its way across the island with cloud showers and possible thundershowers. A strong cold front will then approach from the west  on Tuesday spreading cloud and showers across the island by evening. This front is slow to move through resulting in an all day rain on Wednesday with some embedded thundershowers. The frontal passage occurs late afternoon allowing the precip to come to an end from west to east through the evening hours. A large area of high pressure will then dominate the region Thursday through Saturday with sunshine and light winds. The next system approaches on Sunday with cloud and showers.

Precipitation.. Can’t rule out a stray shower this morning especially down east. Another chance of showers tomorrow as the trough of low pressure moves through. An organized band of rain should begin later Tuesday afternoon ending Wednesday evening. Showers could be heavy at times giving 10-15 mms but locally higher in the heaviest showers. Dry from Thursday through Saturday.

Temperatures.. Warm and muggy today through Wednesday. Cloud cover will keep the temps from getting too high but the humidity will be elevated. If we get a descent amounts of sunshine then expect temps to climb into the mid/high 20’s. One day cool down on Thursday behind the cold front then the heat and humidity returns for Friday through the weekend.

Wind.. Very light southerlies today and tomorrow increasing to light-brisk on Tuesday further increasing to brisk on Wednesday. Wind shift occurs to the NW on Wednesday afternoon with the cold frontal passage. Light NW winds on Thursday then back to southwest on Friday.

Thunderstorms.. Slight chance tomorrow. Thunderstorms possible again on Wednesday.

Tropical systems.. The remnants of ‘Beryl” became better organized overnight and regenerated back into a tropical storm. Beryl is located about half way between Bermuda and Yarmouth. Beryl is moving NNE and should weaken as it moves back over cooler waters later today and should pass east of Sable Island about suppertime tomorrow then  into the Avalon Penn region of Newfoundland Tuesday morning. The system is not expected to have a direct impact on Maritime weather other than some clouds but forecasters are keeping an eye on this system for any northward shift in track which would bring it much closer to NS, hence a tropical weather statement has been issued for NS.

Hazards.. Chance of lightning tomorrow, Tuesday then again on Wednesday.
