Snow has started across the Maritime Provinces. Snow will change to ice pellets across Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and eastern New Brunswick and then change to rain. Over western New Brunswick precipitation will remain as snow.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 centimetres are expected with the highest amounts in central and northeastern portions of New Brunswick.

Near 20 centimetres of snowfall is expected by early this evening for Prince County P.E.I..

In Nova Scotia western and eastern sections of the province will experience long-lasting freezing rain.

There will be strong wind across the Maritime Provinces as well.

In Newfoundland strong winds gusting up to 110 km/h are expected to develop along the south coast and spread to the remainder of the Island on Tuesday. These strong wind will continue over the next few days.

The Avalon will see 5 to 15 mm of rain. 5 to 10 cm of snow is possible elsewhere across Newfoundland with the exception of the Great Northern Peninsula where 10 to 15 cm of snow is likely.
