Another Blast of Winter to Strike Atlantic Canada

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Friday, November 16, 2018

Just as Atlantic Canada clears up from one mess, another is on the way.

A strong are of low pressure that brought snow, rain, and mixed precipitation to the U.S. Northeast on Thursday, will deliver a similar blow to Atlantic Canada.

Snow will begin on Friday morning across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

In Nova Scotia, snow will become mixed with ice pellets and then change to rain in the afternoon. 15 to 20 cm is expected over northern sections of the province.

New Brunswick will most likely remain as snow, however, along the shores of the Bay of Fundy snow may mix with, or change to rain. 15 to 25 cm is expected.

Snow begins on Prince Edward Island early on Friday afternoon. The snow will become mixed with rain overnight. Total amounts of about 15 cm is expected.

Snow will creep onto the southwest corner of Newfoundland on Friday evening. On the south coast and the Avalon Peninsula, the snow will mix with, and eventually change to rain. The heaviest snow will fall in Central Newfoundland where 20 to 30 cm is possible.

The region will also see strong wind develop.
