Atlantic Canada should get used to snow and snow squalls because we are talking about them again.

Snow will be a concern on the Burin Peninsula with 15 to 20 cm expected before tapering off overnight tonight.

Snow will spread across northern and parts of western Newfoundland on Sunday. 10 to 15 cm is possible in some areas on the Great Northern Peninsula .

In Labrador total snowfall amounts of 20 to 45 cm are expected for coastal areas combined with strong winds, creating blizzard conditions.

Additionally, winds will increase with gusts to 70 km/h on Sunday.

Snow squalls are expected across eastern Prince Edward Island, Îles-de-la-Madeleine, and Antigonish County, Digby County, Inverness County - Mabou and north, Inverness County - south of Mabou, Pictou County, Victoria County, and Yarmouth County in Nova Scotia.

Conditions are favourable for the development of snow squalls today and tonight. Some areas could see 10 to 15 cm by the time the snow squalls taper off.
