Schools across Prince Edward Island will be going ahead today, but one hour later.

French and English language school board schools are operating on a one-hour delay while crews continue to try and find somewhere to put all of the snow that has been dumped on the province this fall.

Wednesday's storm left 20 cm of snow at Charlotteotwn Airport, and up to 22 cm in St. Peter's. This, added to snow left behind by a snowstorm on Sunday, makes for high cuttings and snowbanks across P.E.I. today.

The Confederation Bridge was restricted to certain classes of vehicles by times overnight but is open to all traffic and running smoothly this morning. All flights are showing as on time at the Charlottetown Airpot.

Today's forecast from the Environment Canada Weather Office is for a mix of sun and cloud and a high of -7C. Winds will be from the west at 20 km/h gusting to 40.
