Atlantic Canada Storm Update

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Sunday, April 14, 2019

The area of low pressure that we have been watching over the last few days is taking a more northward track then expected.

That means that there have been some changes to the precipitation forecast.

The area of snow will fall more toward northern sections.

Rain will begin over the Maritime Provinces on Monday morning, there may be some freezing rain at times. At this point very little snow is expected in the Maritime Provinces.

Over eastern Quebec there will be snow, amounts could be significant.

Precipitation will begin in Newfoundland as a rain-snow mix. On Monday morning, rain and/or ice pellets will prevail over southwestern Newfoundland. As the day progresses rain will spread to the remainder of Newfoundland. On the Great Northern Peninsula, precipitation is expected to remain as snow, there may be significant accumulation.

Labrador will also see snow with this system.
