Alerts in Effect
Special Weather StatementIssued at 15:51 Tuesday 22 January 2019
Significant rain, strong southwest winds and very mild temperatures likely Thursday and Thursday night.
A warm front will approach the Maritimes from the southwest on Wednesday and cross the Maritimes Wednesday night. This front will usher in much milder air and strengthening southwest winds. Snow will spread across Prince Edward Island Wednesday night, changing to rain by Thursday morning.
At this time, indications are that rain, strong southwest winds and very mild temperatures will persist throughout Prince Edward Island until Friday morning. A return to colder, drier weather is expected on Friday.
Areas that are vulnerable to excess rain falling on frozen ground may have issues with water not being absorbed or draining off well. This is particularly true where snow cover melts contributing to excess water over the frozen ground.
