Jamie Fox tweeted this photo of a tractor-trailer in the ditch on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Albany Y Friday, March 14.

The Trans-Canada Highway in Albany, near the Albany Y, was closed for about an hour earlier this morning as crews dislodged a transport truck from the ditch. 

Roads are reportedly snow-covered, slushy or icy in parts this morning and snowbanks --particularly the farther west one travels in the province -- are high and causing some drifting and blowing snow.

School is open across Prince Edward Island today, though schools in the Westisle family of schools (including the French school in Deblois) were on a one-hour delay.

Parts of the Maritimes received up to 35 cm during Thursday's winter storm, with New Brunswick bearing the brunt of it.

An accident involving four tractor-trailers caused traffic tieups Thursday afternoon at the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border.

Today's forecast is a little sunnier.

Environment Canada calls for clearing this afternoon with winds from the west at 20 km/h, gusting to 40, then becoming light late this afternoon. Today's high is -6C.  Saturday will see a few flurries ending in the morning then cloudy with periods of rain beginning in the afternoon. Winds will come from the south at 40 kmh, gusting to 60. Tomorrow's high temperature is forecast to be on the plus side, 6C.
