There will be some flurries, rain, and blowing snow across Atlantic Canad but it will be minimal compared to another area of low pressure that is expected to have an impact on the region beginning on Sunday afternoon.

A large and deep area of low pressure will move up the Eastern Seaboard and arrive in Nova Scotia early on Sunday afternoon bringing snow to most areas. There will be some rain/snow mixing along eastern areas.

The eastern half of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island will see snow.

By the time the low reaches Newfoundland on Sunday evening, there will be more mixed weather.

It looks like mostly rain for the Avalon and Burin. Central will begin as snow and change to ice pellets or freezing rain and then to rain. The West coast will see snow for a longer period of time, however, that snow will change to ice pellets or freezing rain and then to rain.

There will also be some strong wind to contend with.
