A strengthening area of low pressure will deliver a blast of winter weather to the eastern half of Canada from Ontario to Nova Scotia.

On Sunday, across Northwestern Ontario and North of Superior there is a chance of freezing rain. North of that, 10 to 15 cm of snow is possible. Meanwhile, 25 mm of rain is likely for areas along the northern shore of Lake Superior. 

On Monday, snow and blowing snow is expected to come to an end over northern portions of Northeastern Ontario and southern portions of Far-Northeastern Ontario with total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm possible.

Southern Quebec will also get into some winter weather on Monday.

Over Northwestern and Central areas of Quebec 15 to 25 cm of snow is possible. There is threat of freezing rain Sunday into Monday morning in the Outaouais region and north of the St Lawrence River. There could be 10 to 15 mm of freezing rain. This may cause power outages.

On Monday snow will develop across western New Brunswick and spread to the remainder of the province. 15 cm are possible along with blowing snow.

Snow is expected to develop over western Nova Scotia Monday morning and spread eastward. There may be some ice pellets or freezing rain prior to a change-over to rain. Snowfall amounts could reach 15 cm.
