Major Low to Impact Eastern Canada

Posted by on Saturday, March 19, 2016

A low pressure system is expected to develop over the US Northeast Sunday night.

From there the low is projected to track in an almost northward fashion and bring unsettled weather to eastern Quebec, the Maritime provinces, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

In Quebec for the Gaspé and Basse-Côte-Nord regions, it appears as though the area could receive heavy snowfall from beginning on Monday afternoon and ending Tuesday morning.

In New Brunswick southern parts of the province will receive the most snow. On Prince Edward Island the western half of the island will see snow. Snow will change to freezing rain and ice pellets and then to rain over eastern sections. For Nova Scotia snow to change to freezing rain and ice pellets and then to rain for western sections and Cape Breton Island. For areas along the eastern coast precipitation should be mostly rain.

In Newfoundland all areas will begin as snow and then change over to a rain/snow mix and eventually rain. The exception will be the Northern Peninsula where precipitation should remain as snow and Labrador will only see snow as well.
