A woman walks along Summerside's Water Street in heavy snowfall on Sunday.

Old Man Winter has his icy grip on P.E.I and he has no intention of letting go anytime soon - there is still heavy ice in the harbours and to top it all off a lot of snow is possible for late Wednesday.

The ice is so thick in the Charlottetown harbour that the Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker Terry Fox had to smash a path for a tanker to get to the wharf Sunday afternoon. Spring is less than two weeks away, but the weather is anything but spring like.

In fact, Environment Canada has issued special weather statements in all three of Prince Edward Island’s counties for Wednesday.

An intense low pressure system is expected to bring significant amounts of snow to the province Wednesday.

However, it’s unclear exactly how much the system will bring.

“There is a lot of uncertainty in the track of the low and the precipitation type and amounts,” said a statement on the weather service’s website. “We will continue to monitor the development of this low pressure system.”

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings.
