Rain, thunderstorms forecast for P.E.I.

Published on August 28, 2014

Heavy rain and thunderstorms could hit P.E.I. this afternoon prompting Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for the province.

In its alert, Environment Canada said a surface trough of low pressure and an associated upper level trough give the potential for heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight.

The showers and thunderstorms will be slow moving through the region, which could lead to high amounts of rainfall in a short period of time.
