Islanders need to leave time for snow clearing from vehicles this morning and to be very cautious about ice on roads, especially from compacted snow at intersections.

Environment Canada says flurries will continue until about this afternoon, then be cloudy the rest of the day.

This morning there is a wind chill, feel-like temperature of between –9 to –14 across P.E.I.

It is forecast to be much warmer tomorrow as winds shift around to the south, but extreme caution will be needed driving in the early morning as a heavy dew rests on cold pavement, making for surprisingly icy road, driveway and sidewalk conditions.

On P.E.I. today, early morning temperatures ranged from a high of –0.9 at East Point, to a low of -5.1 in Maple Plains.

The Confederation Bridge today is open to all traffic which is flowing smoothly.

All flights into and out of Charlottetown Airport are showing to be on time. 

WEATHER TODAY: 

A few flurries ending this afternoon then mainly cloudy.

TEMPERATURE: High staying below zero, at -1C most of the middle of the day.

WIND: Northwest, gusting to 40, becoming light this afternoon.
