Special weather statement issued as 'messy' weather expected for P.E.I. this weekend
Snow will start Saturday evening
Prince Edward Islanders who have travel plans or work to do outdoors this weekend should probably do it Saturday, says CBC meteorologist Jim Abraham.
Saturday will be a fine day, with sunshine and temperatures close to freezing, but clouds will start to cover the sky in the late afternoon and snow, perhaps mixed with rain, will begin around 8 p.m. By morning it will be full-on snow.
The snow will taper to flurries Sunday afternoon, but strong winds will continue to cause problems.
"It's going to be quite messy," said Abraham.
"Late in the evening on Saturday, through the night Saturday night and through most of Sunday with those strong winds will be difficult travelling."
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement shortly before 4 p.m. Friday warning of freezing rain and snow overnight Saturday as well as blustery northerly winds and periods of snow Sunday.
