Weather-related delays reported across the Island today

Snow and freezing rain overnight has caused some treacherous roads this morning in Prince Edward Island, as well as power outages and delays.

Those without power, about 350 Maritime Electric customers, are in the Canoe Cove and Rice Point areas. Crews are working to restore power that was knocked out due to icy trees on the line.

And more snow may be coming.

Environment Canada has issued a weather statement that a potential winter storm could affect Prince Edward Island on Friday.

A low pressure system is forecast to develop south of Cape Cod Thursday morning and intensify as it tracks south of Nova Scotia Friday. This system brings the potential for significant snow, wind, and blowing snow affecting the island on Friday.

Tonight the forecast is mainly cloudy with a 30 per cent chance of flurries with wind from the west at 40 km/h, gusting to 60, diminishing to 20, gusting to 40 overnight. The temperature will drop to a low of -13C.

Tuesday will be mainly cloudy with 30 per cent chance of flurries.

    Married to a highway plow operator.I just time his between call break 11 min. Not with us Christmas eve or morning but the kids waited to open gifts till he came home at 1:30 Christmas afternoon.He went to bed after dinner to go back to work at midnight. We are not complaining. He loves his job and the snow is temporary.Bring on the Spring!!!
