A City of Charlottetown plow clears the sidewalks on Water Street after Sunday's snow storm.

A low-pressure system will approach Nova Scotia this evening and track across the province on Wednesday, bringing some snow and wind to Prince Edward Island overnight.

Environment Canada's Weather Office is calling for 2 cm of snow after midnight tonight then another 5 to 10 cm Wednesday morning, ending near noon, when it will change to flurries.

Winds are predicted to come from the northeast 30 km/h, gusting to 50, becoming northwest 20 near noon.

More snow is in Wednesday night's forecast, in the amount of 5 cm and more snow on Thursday.

Atlantic Canadian residents are still cleaning up after Sunday's storm dumped a sloppy mix of snow, rain, freezing rain and ice pellets.

New Brunswick was blanketed with as much as 41 centimetres of snow in some areas.

The messy weather is being blamed for a number of crashes, including a pileup Sunday involving at least five vehicles on the P.E.I. side of the Confederation Bridge.

The RCMP say the Canso Causeway, which connects Cape Breton to mainland Nova Scotia, was also temporarily shut down after a tractor-trailer flipped in high winds.

No one was seriously injured in either accident.
