Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Another area of low pressure will be causing a stir in Atlantic Canada.

This will be the same low that brought snow to Ontario and Quebec.

Precipitation will begin over New Brunswick this morning then intensify later today. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres is expected before changing over to showers on Wednesday. A changeover to rain will occur Tuesday afternoon along the Fundy coast and over the remainder of southern New Brunswick Tuesday night.

On Prince Edward Island snow will likely develop over the island this evening then change to rain near midnight.

Nova Scotia will likely only see rain. 40 millimetres of rain is expected, but there is still a possibility amounts could exceed 50 millimetres in some areas.


In Newfoundland precipitation will begin as snow or freezing rain over western and central sections on Wednesday morning before changing to rain. Over southern Newfoundland, the rain will begin Wednesday morning and spread to eastern regions by afternoon.

Labrador will likely just see snow. The snow will develop over western Labrador Wednesday morning. There is a potential for significant amounts.
