How Much Snow We Can Expect From The Next Atlantic Storm

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, January 5, 2019

A developing area of low pressure over the southeastern United States will gather strength as it nears Atlantic Canada.

Areas from eastern Quebec to Newfoundland will be impacted by this low.

Sunday into Monday there will be heavy snow in eastern Quebec. Snow accumulations could exceed 25 centimeters.

The low will have minimal impacts on New Brunswick.

For Prince Edward Island snow will commence overnight on Saturday. Freezing rain could mix with the snow at times. Snowfall amounts near 10 cm are possible.

Nova Scotia will see rain beginning on Saturday afternoon. It will encompass all areas of the province by evening. The rain will mix with snow and then change over to freezing rain over northern portions of the mainland and Cape Breton Island. Snowfall amounts may reach 10 cm over these affected areas, otherwise, rainfall amounts ranging from 10 to 20 mm are expected.

The system arrives in Newfoundland on Sunday. Snow will change to rain for most areas, excluding the Great Northern Peninsula, and strong winds will give whiteout conditions at times.
