Snow on Thursday? Forecast remains uncertain
Special weather statement from Environment Canada in effect
A blast of winter weather is expected to hit P.E.I. Thursday, according to a special weather statement issued by Environment Canada.
The low pressure system is expected to develop south of Long Island Wednesday morning, with snow forecast to develop over Prince Edward Island overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. The forecast calls for snow or ice pellets through the day Thursday, with a risk of freezing rain.
Here's a look at potential snowfall Wednesday night through Thursday. Snow could be mixing at times with freezing rain, ice pellets and rain (especially over eastern P.E.I.) and there's still a lot of uncertainty with the storm's track so please check back tomorrow for an update. <a href="https://t.co/mjFfb3E6WW">pic.twitter.com/mjFfb3E6WW</a>—@JayScotland
"Mixed precipitation is likely to linger over the Island until late Thursday night," the weather statement reads. "At this time total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres is possible over parts of the Island before the system finally departs by early Friday morning."
Environment Canada warns the weather system is in its early stages of development and is subject to change.
