Just as one low pushes out of Atlantic Canada, another low is moving in over the region.

An area of low pressure will bring some snow to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick today.

By this afternoon, snow will change over to ice pellets and then to rain for Nova Scotia and portions of Prince Edward Island.

Snowfall amounts of about 5 to 10 cm is generally expected followed by rainfall amounts to 10 mm.

Across Newfoundland snow will begin overnight on Wednesday.

Snow will spread across the western sections of the island throughout the day on Thursday. While Eastern section of Newfoundland will likely just see rain.

In Western Newfoundland, snowfall amounts of about 15 to 20 cm is possible, while the Avalon will likely not see much in the way of snow, however, could pick up about 10 mm of rainfall.

There is some uncertainty with the model runs with some showing less amounts of snow for the west coast of Newfoundland. We are continuing to update snowfall totals as necessary.
