A winter storm warning is now in place in Prince County.

In Queens County, a winter storm watch has been posted.


While there are no warnings or watches for Kings County, all three counties are expected to get a messy blast of weather.

That' s all due to a storm system that will develop over New England on Wednesday and push a mix of precipitation into Prince Edward Island on Wednesday night as it tracks into the Maritimes.

Environment Canada says current indications are that the precipitation will begin as snow in the evening. Snow will be heavy at times especially in western portions of the province where strong gusty winds will also give reduced visibilities in blowing snow.

Snow will change to freezing rain and ice pellets further east.

“There is the potential for a prolonged period of freezing rain over central portions of the Island overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning,” Environment Canada says.

“Snow will change to rain in the east with a period of freezing rain and ice pellets likely during the transition.”
