Environment Canada has removed a warning for severe thunderstorm conditions on P.E.I.

The weather office had said that storm conditions could also deliver large hail, and  readers on the north shore reporte hail through the mid day.

"Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes," the weather office statement said. "There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors."

Showers are forcast for the rest of the day.

Saturday is the first official day of summer but it's not looking much more summer-like.

The forecast calls for Saturday to be mainly cloudy with a 30 per cent chance of showers in the morning and early in the afternoon, then a mix of sun and cloud. Wind will be from the northwest at 30 km/h gusting to 50 and becoming light early in the evening. Saturday's high temperature will be 13C.
