Messy roads, blowing snow

According to Environment Canada, the snow will start falling across the Island on Sunday night. It could change to rain during the day on Monday, but is expected to return to snow by Tuesday.

"In addition to messy roads, blowing snow is also a concern due to a gusty northeast wind that develops Monday afternoon and evening," said CBC P.E.I. meteorologist Jay Scotland.
