Environment Canada has issued an advisory stating that the snowfall on the islands could exceed 15 centimetres Wednesday through Thursday.
Snow is expected to start Wednesday afternoon and then transition into rain in evening. According to the statement, rain will likely turn to heavy, wet snow Thursday morning in strong west-to-northwest winds.
Wind gusts can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h and rainfall can range from 15-25 millimetres, although higher amounts may be possible in some areas.
Expect higher snowfall in the west and more rainfall in the east.
Environment Canada states that the combination of rain and snow, along with strong winds, can lead to unsafe travel conditions.
