City of Charlottetown crews clean the snow from University Avenue earlier this month.

Everyone should take a seat and a deep, soothing breath before reading this story because it involves more snow.

Environment Canada says a potential winter storm could affect the Island tonight and early Friday morning and a second storm is possible for Sunday night and Monday.

A low pressure system is forecast to develop near Cape Cod this evening and intensify as it tracks across Nova Scotia overnight tonight to lie east of Cape Breton Friday morning. This system is expected to bring snow and gusty winds to most of Prince Edward Island tonight.

There is still uncertainty with respect to the track and intensity of the system. It is possible that some regions may require a snowfall warning as more than 15 centimetres of snow could fall during the overnight period tonight.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be required.

A second winter storm is expected to develop over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard late Sunday and track northeastward passing near Nova Scotia on Monday. This system could bring significant snow and strong winds.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of these two weather systems providing updates as new information becomes available.

    Global cooling is a serious thing . I know people laugh now but you won't be when the glaciers start moving down from the north and cover PEI again like they did 13000 years ago .

    Where's this mild winter the Weather Network predicted in a story the Guardian posted just a few weeks back.

      The Weather Network is no good. They always increase temperatures by 2 degrees and if Environment Canada says "Sun and Cloud", the Weather Network will say "Sunny". Never depend on the Weather Network. They likely also follow Environment Canada then alter it to be nicer. If you want the most possible accurate weather, go to www.weather.gc.ca.
