Snowy climatic conditions in PEI

All regional government offices in Kings and Queens County, and the Charlottetown province, were on a postponed opening till with a further report predicted before noon. 

Those revocations come after snowfall alerts from Environment Canada for Queens and Kings county, with total amounts between 15 and 25 centimeters anticipated.

That snow will persist through Monday evening and into the night.  

On Monday morning, Prince County was under a particular climate statement, with snowfall amounts predicted between 5 and 15 centimeters.

“The light nature of the snow in the mix with colder temperatures may produce localized whiteouts on roadways and overexposed regions later today,” stated the Environment Canada report. “Be ready to adjust your driving with changing road situations.” “Hopefully, we don’t have to go anywhere today,” said CBC meteorologist Tina Simpkin. “Just crouch down and let this one pass.” Source –
