The Island will see light flurries beginning between the hours of 9-11 a.m. on Thursday, CBC Meteorologist Tina Simpkin said.
That snow will begin to accumulate as the day goes on.
"We could see anywhere from five to 10 centimetres of snow with an additional five centimetres possible Thursday night into Friday," said Simpkin.
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT remains in effect for as much as 10 cm of snow on Thursday. Latest guidance has amounts generally between 8-12 cm for the Island with snow arriving mid-morning and continuing through afternoon and evening. Blowing snow possible with brisk southeast wind. <a href="https://t.co/cQZ2QmnUam">pic.twitter.com/cQZ2QmnUam</a>—@JayScotland
Temperatures will likely warm up Thursday afternoon reaching a possible high of around -5 C, Simpkin said.
"We'll keep the flurries in the forecast for Friday but we're not talking about accumulating snow on Friday," Simpkin said.
Islanders can look forward to warmer weather heading into the weekend, Simpkin said.
