Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for all of P.E.I. saying a winter storm will likely bring a mix of snow, ice pellets and rain with strong winds Monday night into Tuesday.

The statement says the storm will approach the Maritimes from the west on Monday and precipitation is expected to begin as snow over the Island late Monday night and then become mixed or change to ice pellets before morning.

 Precipitation is expected to change to rain sometime Tuesday morning. Environment Canada says that the exact timing and location of the rain/snow boundary is impossible to determine this far in advance.

Strong east to southeasterly winds are expected to cross the province beginning early Tuesday morning, likely shifting to strong north to north easterlies later Tuesday night.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #PEStorm.

      God forbid they should report the weather without some backwoods halfwits crying about it. Feel free to drive around and travel all you like in the weather. You obviously know far better than Environment Canada what's going on.

      At least there is some standardization to it now rather than Joe Blow dumping whatever amount of salt he feelt like. Or should I say dump it and then go home early on a Friday.
