P.E.I. can expect heavy rainfall and strong winds Sunday evening. 

A special weather statement has been issued for the Island by Environment Canada. 

The statement says a very mild and humid air mass will bring rain and strong winds over most of the Maritime region.

The rain is expected to change to flurries on Monday and temperatures will fall well below zero Monday evening, which will bring icing conditions.

There is also another system expected to hit mid-week with a possibility of rain, heavy snow and strong winds.
