A winter storm is expected to hit P.E.I. Sunday night and linger into Monday.

An intense low-pressure system will approach from the southwest Sunday night and pass over or near the Island overnight and into early Monday, according to Environment Canada.

Snow will develop well ahead of the system and change through freezing rain and ice pellets to rain Sunday night.

Current indications suggest near 15 cm of snowfall before the changeover. Additionally, strengthening easterly winds will give blowing snow Sunday afternoon.

It should be noted that even a slight shift in its forecast track will have major effects on the type and amount of precipitation received.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
