Environment Canada is continuing its special weather statements for P.E.I., saying a winter storm is likely to bring a mix of snow, ice pellets and rain with strong winds Tuesday and Tuesday night.
“A winter storm will approach the Maritimes from the west Monday night. Precipitation is expected to begin as snow Monday night then become mixed with or change to ice pellets during the day Tuesday,” the statement says.
Precipitation is expected to change to rain late Tuesday and Environment Canada says the exact timing and location of the rain and snow boundary is still impossible to determine this far in advance.
Strong east to southeasterly winds are expected to develop across the province Tuesday morning, likely shifting to strong north to northeasterlies Tuesday night. Higher than normal water levels are also possible Tuesday night along the Northumberland Strait coast.
