Timeline and Precipitation Amounts for Atlantic Canada

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, April 3, 2018
An area of low pressure that is presently impacting Ontario and Quebec will begin to move into the Maritime Provinces overnight and eventually to Newfoundland beginning on Wednesday afternoon.

It looks like all areas of the Maritime Provinces will begin as snow and change to rain as the low moves north. In New Brunswick there is a risk of ice pellets, freezing rain is possible Wednesday afternoon and into the evening. Extreme southern Nova Scotia will likely only see some light flurries before a very quick transition to rain.

In western New Brunswick, 15 to 25 centimetres of snow is are expected with this storm.

There will also be some gusty winds to contend with.

On Wednesday afternoon weather conditions across Newfoundland will begin to deteriorate.

Snow will move across most of the Island with the exception of the Great Northern Peninsula. Overnight Wednesday the snow will change to ice pellets or freezing rain, and then eventually to rain. The Great Northern Peninsula won't see snow until overnight Wednesday.

Snow will begin in Labrador on Wednesday night, along the southeast coast the snow could become mixed with ice pellets.
