Atlantic Canada Expecting Snow Squalls Beginning Tonight
As the rain comes to an end across Atlantic Canada today, colder air will be ushered in. This means many areas will see some flurries and some snow squalls depending on where you are.
Overnight tonight and through Monday night up to 15 cm of snow is expected from snow squalls over Inverness County - Mabou and north and Victoria County. Winds will also gust to 80 km/h causing reduced visibility and blowing snow.
Along the west coast of Newfoundland, snow squalls are also expected. Snow squalls are possible beginning on Monday morning and the risk extends through Tuesday evening. Amounts up to 10 cm are possible. Locally higher amounts are possible over higher elevations. Winds are also expected to gust to 80 km/h causing reduced visibility and blowing snow.
Strong winds are expected in the Cabot Strait which has prompted Marine Atlantic to make some changes to their schedule. The crossings scheduled for this morning have been rescheduled to tonight. There may be delays on Monday and Tuesday also.
