The Environment Canada Weather Office has issued weather warnings for Prince Edward Island that include rainfall, freezing rain and snow for different regions of the Island.
As Prince Edward Island schools are closed for the fourth day in a row Monday, the forecast doesn't look better for Tuesday.
Environment Canada has issued warnings for different parts of the Island. There are freezing rain and rain warnings for Kings County; a winter storm warning for Prince County; and Queens County gets the jackpot with both winter storm and rainfall warnings.
A low-pressure system slowly approaching from the southwest will drift south of Nova Scotia today and Tuesday, says the Weather Office.
The freezing rain will persist over West Prince County today, while the rest of the Island will see rain, freezing rain and ice pellets.
The precipitation will change to snow tonight and persist on Tuesday. Further rainfall amounts of 10 millimetres are expected in Queens County while 15 to 30 centimetres of snow is expected over central and western areas.
The snow will be accompanied by strong northeast winds giving poor visibility in blowing snow.
Tuesday's forecast calls for 5 cm of snow, at times heavy, and blowing snow. The Confederation Bridge's site specific forecast calls for winds to persist until 4 p.m. Tuesday.
So far, there is sun in the forecast for Wednesday and a high of 2C.
