For the second day in a row, schools on P.E.I. are closed down due to winter weather.

For the second day in a row, schools on P.E.I. are closed down due to winter weather.

Snow started falling early Thursday morning. With about 10 centimetres down and a further 10-15 centimetres forecast, the English and French language school boards announced at 6:30 a.m. schools would not open. Most government offices have delayed opening until 10:30 a.m.

Flights are running on time at the Charlottetown Airport and traffic on Confederation Bridge is running smoothly, but there are reports from across the province that roads are not plowed.

Schools were also closed Wednesday, under very similar circumstances. In all, about 28 centimetres fell in Charlottetown on Wednesday, with more in the east and less in the western end of the province.

The sun came out Wednesday afternoon, and Thursday's snowfall is also forecast to end around noon. Unlike Wednesday, there is also a risk of freezing rain Thursday morning.
