“While the more noteworthy danger is over Nova Scotia, some cool rain is still potential here on PEI for southeastern regions. Snow and ice pellets will start to taper off tonight into Saturday, but lingering showers and bumbling snow may be a problem through Saturday morning for exposed zones.” Source – cbc.ca
Scotland is forecasting quantities between 25 and 50 centimeters across the region.
“Snow-covered roads are a big problem,” he stated, adding that power outages are also feasible. Source – cbc.ca
The southern regions of Queens and Kings counties will see more ice pellets blending with the snow, beginning early Friday. That will mean less snow in those regions.
