The snow and ice accumulation is expected to be about five centimetres.
Southeast winds will gust as high as 70 kilometres an hour early in the afternoon.
The forecasted high is zero.
The ice pellets will change to rain showers or drizzle this evening, with a rainfall amount of two millimetres.
The temperature will rise to plus four this evening and then fall.
The southeast winds will continue gusting to 70, changing to southwest with gusts as high as 50, 70 along parts of the coast late this evening and overnight.
The outlook for Friday is flurries, southwest gusts as high as 80, and temperatures near zero.
It's predicated that Saturday and Sunday will be cloudy with a 60 per cent chance of flurries.
