Sunshine today for PEI followed by a few days of cloud and showers.

Tuesday, June 25th 6:30am… An area of high pressure centered through Maine will drift eastward today cresting over the island this evening. A warm front will then begin to approach from the west over night bring cloud and showers to the island later tomorrow.

This will result in a prolonged period of unsettled weather with cloud and showers/thundershowers.

Temperatures… At or slightly below normal this period.

Wind… Light northerly flow today shifting to southerly flow tonight once the area of high pressure shifts east. Light south winds then expected through Sunday.

Thunderstorms… Conditions will be conducive for thunderstorms across the Maritimes beginning tomorrow and lasting for a few days. Some of these storms could become strong/severe especially across NB.

Rain event expected tomorrow across PEI.

Thursday, June 20th 9:20am… Clouds have spread across the region this morning ahead of a cold front approaching from the NW. This front will stall ion a NW-SE fashion across NB today setting off a few showers especially up west. Low pressure currently south of the Great Lakes will intensify today and track ENE along this stalled frontal boundary moving right into the Maritimes Friday afternoon with enhanced rainfall. This system will be slow moving so expect the cloud and rain to continue into Saturday as it moves across Newfoundland. It will also be quite windy and cool for the weekend more like a fall storm. High pressure will build just south of NS on Monday and Tuesday with sunshine. Clouds and showers return on Wednesday as a frontal system approaches.

Precipitation… Can’t rule out a few showers today especially up west closer to the front. Significant rain event expected on Friday and Saturday with Rain beginning Friday morning and ending Saturday evening giving total amounts in the 35-50 mm range. The exact amounts and areas are still unclear as the models are having a difficult time with this system.

Temperatures… Near normal today but the cloud cover will keep temps from getting too warm. Below normal for tomorrow through Tuesday with the weekend being rather chilly especially along the north shore. A cool wet windy weekend ahead.

Wind… Light SW winds now will shift to light SE for tomorrow then shift and increase to brisk NE late tomorrow night. Brisk northerlies continue for Saturday and Sunday then dropping off to light-brisk north on Monday.

Hazards… Possible heavy rain event (35-50 mms) for tomorrow and Saturday giving wet driving conditions. Water ponding on roads. Minor city flooding in those prone areas.

Watches/warnings… Special weather statement issued for possible heavy rain event.

Warm and sunny conditions expected today across PEI.

Wednesday, June 19th 8:30am… An area of high pressure that has given sunshine to the island over the past couple days is drifting away to the SE today but should give at least one more day of sunshine. Clouds will begin to spread across the island tonight as a low pressure system organizes south of the Great Lakes. This system is expected to move ENE passing through the Maritimes on Friday with rain at times heavy. Things then start to get a bit complicated as some models have the storm system stalling over the Maritimes for a few days bringing rainy cool weather through Monday. Other models have the storm stalling over Newfoundland. Will need to wait and see how future models runs are depicting this system.

Precipitation… Rain begins near noon on Friday ending near dawn on Saturday. The big question is where this system stalls. If it stalls over the region then rain  continues into Monday.

Temperatures… Slightly above normal today and tomorrow cooling of to below normal for Friday through Monday. Depends on where this storm system stalls.

Wind… Light SW winds today and tomorrow shifting to SE for early Friday then over to brisk NE Friday afternoon as the storm moves through. Cool brisk NE winds continue Saturday and Sunday.

Hazards… None next couple days.

Watches/warnings… None for PEI at this time.

Forecast…

  • Today… Sun and cloud, light SW winds, highs 25
  • Tonight… Few clouds, very light SW winds, lows 16
  • Tomorrow… Cloudy, light SW winds, highs 25
  • Friday… Rain, light SE winds shifting to brisk NE, highs 16
