It may say spring on the calendar but Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the message.
Yet another storm is heading towards Prince Edward Island. It is expected to dump 10 to 15 centimetres of snow on the Island overnight Thursday into Friday.
That has prompted Environment Canada to issue a winter storm watch for all of Prince Edward Island.
“This is an alert to the potential development of dangerous winter weather conditions,” Environment Canada says.
A low-pressure system is expected to develop well south of Nova Scotia tonight and will intensify on Thursday as it approaches Sable Island from the south.
On Thursday night the low will continue to deepen and is expected to approach Cape Breton towards dawn Friday. As the storm approaches snow at times heavy is expected to develop late Thursday evening over Prince Edward Island giving snowfall amounts possibly exceeding 10 to 15 centimetres by dawn Friday.
Strong northeast winds ahead of the low will also cause blowing snow late Thursday night.
Environment Canada says there is still some uncertainty as to the exact track of this low with snowfall amounts greatly depending on its final track.
All this comes on the heels of today’s snowstorm, arriving on the first day of spring.
Close to 10 centimetres of snow fell on the capital city early Wednesday morning.
