Two areas of low pressure will converge over Atlantic Canada on Thursday.

An area of low pressure approaching from the south will have an impact on Nova Scotia beginning on Thursday afternoon. A few showers is expected across the area, we may also see some showers on Prince Edward Island.

At the same time, an area of low pressure over Northern Quebec will send some snow, freezing rain, and rain into Labrador.

Beginning overnight Thursday, Newfoundland will see some rain. Rain will begin along the South Coast prior to midnight. Rain will spread to all areas by Friday morning.

As the first system pushes off, the area of low pressure over Labrador will sink south sending some rain to the West Coast of Newfoundland, while the rain-snow mix continues in Labrador.

There will also be some strong winds on the backside of the Low over Labrador and portions of Western Newfoundland as we head into Friday night.

The low moves offshore on Saturday Gusty winds continue.
