Another winter storm has shut down P.E.I. schools.

Snow began falling across the Island overnight. There were a few centimetres down by 6 a.m. with another 10 to 15 expected before the snow ends around noon.

Most government offices have delayed opening until at least 10:30 a.m. Provincial offices will open at 10:30 in West Prince, and at noon in Charlottetown. Holland Colleges has closed its campuses across the province. UPEI, which has no classes scheduled due to the February break, has closed for the day.

The 6 a.m. flight from Charlottetown to Toronto left 30 minutes late, but other flights at Charlottetown Airport are listed as on time. Traffic on Confederation Bridge is running without restrictions.

There are two more bouts of snow in the forecast for the Island this week. Another two to four centimetres is forecast for Thursday morning. What had been forecast as rain for Friday is now predicted by Environment Canada to be snow.
