CHARLOTTETOWN: Dangerous storm set to strike on Sunday

We’re about to experience a blast of weather as a powerful winter storm tracks across the province with 15 to 25 cm of snow, 30 to 40 mm of rain, a few hours of freezing rain and wind gusts to 70 km/h. The mess gets under early Sunday morning and will spread eastward quite quickly. The centre of the storm will split the Island in two: the heaviest snow will fall on the western edge of the track with heavy rain to the south and east. An extended period of freezing rain is likely directly beneath the storm’s core. As the low pulls away on Monday, the wind comes around to the NW and that will bring a drop in temperature and onshore snow squalls. After a brief lull between systems, we can expect another rain/snow mix late Wednesday into Thursday.
