Environment Canada has ended the wind warning for all of Prince Edward Island but has issued a blowing snow warning for the Island.

Strong westerly winds will give reduced visibilities in blowing snow today.


This is a warning that an extended period of blowing snow with poor visibilities is expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.


An intense low pressure system north of Cape Breton will move slowly northeastward to lie over Newfoundland this evening.


Periods of snow and blowing snow will give frequently reduced visibilities for much of today across the province. Conditions will improve over Prince County this afternoon and later tonight over the remainder of the province.


Also ice pressure from strong northwest winds and higher than normal water levels may cause ice to push in and raft along the North Coast of the island this morning.
