Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for parts of New Brunswick, which could see up to 20 centimetres of snow.

Those areas include Kent County and much of southern, New Brunswick.

However, Moncton is not included in the snowfall warning.

A special weather statement remains in place across Prince Edward Island. 

But the snowfall amounts have been dropped to 10 centimetres before it all turns to rain on Friday.

A warm frontal system will approach the Island later Thursday. Snow and occasional blowing snow will begin in the evening then change to a few showers overnight.

Up to 10 centimetres of accumulation is currently expected.

Heavy winds will accompany the storm system. The Confederation Bridge is warning restrictions may be necessary on the bridge late Thursday evening and Friday morning.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may still be required.

The forecast calls for rain during the day on Friday and highs of plus 6.

    Until THIS Winter, I was rather skeptical about enviromental warming. The Lunenburg County area of Nova Scotia until yesterday has had rather warm tempretures & little snow. Sister so far only had to have the long driveway plowed twice. Sis says, Can't get any better than that at $40 a pop-per plow! She has a loooong make you feel welcome, beautiful driveway. PEI Winters are infamous for it's huge amounts of snow and freezing cold winter tempretures. Seems We Islanders been lucky with milder winter weather so far which is fantastic, still ... can't wait to get to Florida to visit Mom! Drive safe - Drive according to weather & road conditions And DON'T Drink and Drive drunk - stoned! Your Mom will miss You when You kill yourself or someone else in an intoxicated 'accident.'

    Patiently waiting for the teacher bashing to start! I've got my popcorn.... Let me guess....the thought pattern goes something like this: "Did you hear there's 10 cm of snow coming" "Really" "Ya, they might close school" "Ah...another day off for teachers" "Check the Guardian website...." "Yep, they closed the schools....I'm upset....I'm commenting!" Does that about sum it up? Oh, and for the record...my dad worked as a mechanic and not once did he ever bring an engine part home to work on for the evening. Somehow, I see Teachers doing this every day! (& weekend)....(and storm days :)
