Spring could have sprung Monday night, and it might certainly be late March, however that doesn’t imply we’re completed with winter simply but with snow within the forecast for Prince Edward Island Thursday evening into Friday.
Snow will unfold throughout the Island this night and proceed in the course of the in a single day hours. The snow will likely be coupled with east-southeast wind gusts of 30 to 50 km/h.
The centre of the low-pressure system will draw back from Nova Scotia on Friday and we’ll see the steadiest snow ease to intervals of sunshine snow and flurries which can proceed all through Friday earlier than easing into Friday night.
Because of this, we will count on 10 to twenty cm of snow throughout the Island between Thursday night and Friday night, and I’m leaning in direction of the upper finish of the size based mostly on the steering on Thursday morning. Given bands of snow will persist till late Friday, native quantities of 20 to 25 cm are attainable down east the place these bands might be a bit extra persistent.
Actually, not a serious occasion however sufficient to create poor journey situations into the upcoming weekend. Maintain a really shut eye on climate and street situations earlier than venturing out. I’d additionally recommend protecting the shovels helpful as one other low-pressure system is about to ship extra snow on Sunday.
