City of Charlottetown crews clean the snow from University Avenue Thursday to make room for something nasty that this way comes for Sunday.
Environment Canada warns of another major storm on the weekend that could dump 10 to 15 centimetres of snow, freezing rain and rain
Winter weary Islanders need to brace themselves for what may very well be a third storm heading towards Prince Edward Island.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Sunday for all three counties for the potential for a third winter storm in a week.
“On Saturday a trough of low-pressure will slowly move over the Maritimes and remain over the region throughout the weekend,” Environment Canada says.
“There is potential for significant snow, freezing rain, ice pellets, and blowing snow on Sunday.”
While it is too early to predict any amounts or duration of the snow or freezing rain with this event, Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this storm providing updates as new information becomes available.

The current forecast calls for extended periods of freezing rain or rain on Sunday.
But before all that, some forecast models suggest, another 10 to 15 centimetres of snow may fall.
“Those planning travel or other weather-sensitive activities for Sunday are advised to monitor future forecasts for more information and any warnings that may be required,” Environment Canada adds.
For the record, the first day of winter doesn’t begin until Dec. 21.
