RCMP are advising motorists to use caution while driving over the next 24 hours.
Snow changing to rain and freezing rain will result in slippery road conditions right across the Island.
Motorists are reminded to plan ahead, adjust their speed and allow for extra time and stopping distance and, where possible, remain off the highways unless necessary.
The storm currently hitting the Island is the fourth storm in a week and a half.
The inclement weather has prompted numerous cancellations across the province.
An Environment Canada snowfall warning is still in place for the province.
A further 20 centimetres of snow is expected as a trough of low pressure continues to persist just south of Nova Scotia.
Snow and or ice pellets are expected to continue into Monday then change to rain Monday evening.
A total snowfall/ice pellet accumulation of 20 centimetres is expected.
