A winter storm warning is in effect for Queens and Prince County, while a wind warning has been issued for Kings County.
A low-pressure system approaching from the west is expected to bring snowfall accumulation in the 15 to 25 cm range in Queens and Prince County. Environment Canada said Queens County will likely see lesser amounts of snow, however it is also expected to see a period of ice pellets and rain before the snow gradually tapers to flurries Monday.
Winds gusting up to 80 km/h are also expected across the province.
Kings County will see strong southeasterly winds gusting up to 90 km/h overnight tonight. On Monday afternoon, as the low moves into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, strong westerly winds gusting up to 90 km/h are likely along some coastal areas, especially along the north shore.
Environment Canada advised Islanders to consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult in some locations.
Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to have an emergency plan and emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
