It may still be three days away but Environment Canada is already warning of a storm brewing for Prince Edward Island for Sunday.

A special weather statement has been issued for all three counties across the Island. 

But first Islanders are dealing with the cold.



“An Arctic air mass has brought unseasonably cold temperatures near minus 15 combined with some moderate westerly winds resulting in cold wind chill values of minus 25 to minus 30 for tonight,” Environment Canada says.

On Saturday, a low-pressure system is forecast to develop over the southeastern United States and is expected to intensify as it moves towards Atlantic Canada during the day.

“There is the potential for significant snow, strong winds and blowing snow on Sunday for Prince Edward Island,” Environment Canada

“There is the potential for significant snow, strong winds and blowing snow on Sunday for Prince Edward Island,” Environment Canada says.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of the storm providing updates as new information becomes available.

However, the national weather service is warning those planning travel or other weather-sensitive activities for Sunday to monitor future forecasts for more information and any warnings that may be required.

The current forecast for Sunday calls for snow and blowing snow. Some forecasts models suggest more than 15 centimetres of snow with more snow falling later in the week, most likely Wednesday.

    Boomer gets his info from environment Canada the same as peter code even though he is a real meteorologist. And I don't think anyone ever said Boomer was a real meteorologist hens the sarcasm between him and Bruce.

    boomer is no meteorologist he reads the forecast from Environment Canada and the weather network and then makes his own numbers. i have not heard and weather forecaster say it is not coming. i would like to see his papers like peter coade has. now he is a real weather man. and i think boomer rang spends more time on air then the news. thank God for the MUTE button. i remember reading the figures last month of the rain we had and boomers numbers were no where close to the real numbers.
