Strong Storm System Set to Impact Atlantic Canada

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Monday, November 12, 2018

A strong storm system is set to impact Atlantic Canada beginning on Wednesday.

Atlantic Canada will see snow, rain, freezing rain, and very strong wind depending on the location.

New Brunswick: The northern half of New Brunswick will see mostly snow, southern sections will see snow at first then mixing with rain before a total transition to rain. Northern sections could see as much as 20 cm of snow.

Prince Edward Island: The system will bring both snow and rain along with strong wind.

Nova Scotia: Mostly rain is expected for Nova Scotia. Some mixing is possible over the Cape Breton Highlands. Strong winds will be the main concern.

Newfoundland: The system arrives in Newfoundland overnight Tuesday. Most of Newfoundland, with the exception of the Avalon will start out as snow before changing to rain. The Avalon will likely remain as rain. Very strong will likely continue through Thursday.

Labrador: The system arrives in western Labrador overnight Tuesday and snow will move eastwards. Very strong will likely continue through Thursday.

Conditions will clear across the Maritime's on Wednesday night, however on the backside of the low strong winds will continue. Newfoundland and Labrador will clear on Friday, aside from sea-effect precipitation. It will be the same story with gusty winds behind the low.
