CHARLOTTETOWN: White for now, but not for long

A slow-moving area of low pressure tracking just east of Prince Edward Island is serving up a little bit of everything. A wind shift to the northwest behind the system pulls in some colder air and a return to snow. Snowfall totals will range from 10 to 20 cm by Tuesday afternoon. The wind is a big part of this weather event: turning to the north and gusting to 80 km/h. Expect poor visibility and whiteout conditions in open areas. As that cold air rushes down behind the storm, temperatures will drop through the day Tuesday. Clearing follows the weather maker and we’ll enjoy a break until Friday night. The next system is expected to stall to our west and that means rain and lots of it: as much as 40 mm on Saturday. So much for a White Christmas.
