Environment Canada upgraded a special weather statement to a warning early Monday afternoon. The forecast is now calling for 15 to 20 centimetres of snow, with less snow generally falling in the west — perhaps less than five centimetres in Prince County.

"Enough snow to make roads slippery, and 40-60 km/h north winds may reduce visibility even as the steady snow tapers off to flurries this evening," said CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland.

Plows were out at midday in Kings and Queens counties. In Kings, dispatchers were reporting snow-covered roads and poor visibility. Conditions were slippery in Queens.

The snow was just starting in East Prince. Roads were still bare.

The snow is forecast to fall steadily throughout the day, tapering to flurries around 9 p.m. AT.

It will be cold overnight, with the temperature dropping to –11 C.
