Atlantic Canada Storm Commences This Afternoon

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Sunday, February 24, 2019

Snow will begin across southwestern New Brunswick and southern Nova Scotia later this afternoon and spread to the remainder of the Maritimes this evening.

Across extreme southeastern New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the snow will change to ice pellets and then to rain before dawn on Monday.

In Newfoundland, snow will begin early in the morning across southwestern sections and then spread across the remainder of the province by afternoon.

Across the south coast and the southern Avalon Peninsula, snow may mix with or change to rain.

Strong winds will cause reduced visibility and blowing snow. There is also a risk of power outages. On PEI, winds will gust to 90 km/h tonight. Strong winds gusting up 90 km/h along the Fundy Coast are expected to develop on Monday. In western and southern Newfoundland winds will gust from 100 km/h to 130 km/h along the coast. In the Wreckhouse area, gusts to 160 km/h are possible. 

Flurries will continue through Thursday in Newfoundland and Labrador.
