Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Prince Edward Island for Monday evening, Tuesday morning
Monday’s sunny skies could be described as the calm before the storm.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Prince Edward Island as a mix of winter weather moves into the province Monday evening.
A trough of low-pressure south of the Great Lakes will push east and through the northeastern U.S. on Monday and then through the Maritimes overnight into Tuesday.
Precipitation associated with this storm will begin over the Island Monday evening as snow and change to ice pellets or freezing rain overnight.
“Current models suggest up to 10 centimetres of snow can be expected before the change over for most regions with up to 15 centimetres possible for northern areas of the Island,” Environment Canada says.
As the trough approaches temperatures will continue to rise overnight and allow the precipitation to change to rain by Tuesday morning.
Environment Canada says warnings may be posted for P.E.I. on Monday.
