Special weather statement issued for the entire province

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Prince Edward Island saying that heavy rain is possible Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

“A low pressure system will develop over the southern United States reaching New England by late Tuesday. This system is expected to bring light snow into Western Nova Scotia overnight and into Tuesday morning for eastern areas.”

 The approach of the system's cold front could then give significant amounts of rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and warning level rainfall amounts may spread north to Prince Edward Island and east to Cape Breton on Wednesday,” the statement says.

 Environment Canada says the system will also be accompanied by a significant warming trend driven by strong southerly winds. This combination is likely to cause significant snow melt for much of the province that could cause localized flooding.

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.
