Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.

An intensifying low pressure system will approach in the East today. Strengthening southeasterly winds can be expected today with gusts near 90 km/h by noon. Winds will ease this evening.

Additionally, snow ahead of this system will begin this morning and change over to rain by the afternoon. This snow combined with high winds will reduce visibility in blowing snow. Snowfall amounts of near 10 centimetres are expected. Rain will taper to showers this evening.

Snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is expected. Snow at times heavy this morning will gradually change to rain over New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island,
southern and eastern New Brunswick through the day today before tapering to scattered showers and then flurries tonight. Over northwestern sections of the province accumulating snow will continue into Thursday morning followed by improving conditions.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

Please note that due to weather issues and the safety of our drivers and staff, our Prince Edward Island location has closed for the day.
