Large Area of Low Pressure Could Hit Atlantic Canada

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, March 20, 2018

A large area of low pressure will be positioned south of the Maritime provinces on Wednesday.

By Wednesday night we will begin to see impacts from the system.

New Brunswick will see snow beginning Wednesday night and continue into Thursday, with a risk of ice pellets and freezing rain over eastern parts of the province on Thursday.

On Prince Edward Island snow will commence Wednesday night but will probably change to ice pellets and/or freezing rain and then to rain on Thursday. 

Snow will likely begin late in the day Wednesday in Nova Scotia but will likely change to ice pellets and freezing rain Wednesday night and to rain or drizzle over most areas by early Thursday morning.

Precipitation will begin across Newfoundland on Wednesday night. We will likely see snow to start, it will likely change to ice pellets and/or freezing rain and then to rain on Thursday afternoon. Along the west coast, precipitation will likely remain as snow.

There are still several different possibilities for this system, keep checking back for updates.

Conditions will begin to improve on Saturday.
