The Latest Atlantic Storm Has Commenced

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Much the same thinking with the storm heading toward Atlantic Canada as yesterday.

Snow has started started across the Maritime Provinces.

Across New Brunswick we are looking at about 15 to 25 cm of snow. Across extreme southeastern sections 5 to 10 cm is expected prior to a changeover to rain.

15 to 20 cm is likely over Prince Edward Island. Additionally strong winds will develop tonight.

Across Nova Scotia generally 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected, except for the Shelburne and Yarmouth Counties where only 5 to 10 cm is likely. About 15 to 20 cm is expected for Cape Breton Island. Snow will change to showers as temperatures rise above zero. Strong winds will develop this afternoon.

The heaviest snow across Newfoundland will fall in a line from the Burin Peninsula to the Bonavista Peninsula where 20 to 30 cm is possible. For the Avalon, the Gander area, and the Bay St. George to Corner Brook area 15 to 20 cm is likely. Elsewhere in central 10 to 15 cm is expected. On the Great Northern Peninsula 5 to 10 cm is expected. The snow begins along the southwest coast near noon and will reach the Avalon late this evening. Gusty winds are also expected.
