Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning for all of Prince Edward Island.

“An extended period of freezing rain is expected Sunday night. This is a warning that an extended period of freezing rain is expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions and listen for updated statements.

A low pressure system approaching from the southwest tonight will slowly pass south of Nova Scotia on Sunday and Monday.

Snow associated with this system is expected to begin Sunday morning then change through ice pellets to an extended period of freezing rain on Sunday night. The freezing rain will persist for most of the night but is expected to change to rain late overnight over the eastern half of the island. On Monday and Tuesday, the precipitation is expected to change back through ice pellets to flurries over much of the province as the low slowly moves away.”

Meanwhile, officials at Confederation Bridge said that wind conditions on the bridge Sunday may mean restrictions of traffic .

“Commencing at approximately 11:30 p.m. Sunday March 30, 2014 winds are projected in the 60-70 kp/h range gusting to 90 km/h. Forecasts indicate conditions will remain the same until approximately 11 a.m. Monday March 31.”
