An area of low pressure is expected to approach Atlantic Canada on New Year's Eve and have an adverse impact on the weather for New Years Day and Thursday.
At this time it appears as though most of Nova Scotia will see rain. A rain-snow mix is expected on Cape Breton Island.
On Prince Edward Island, snow will change over to rain with the risk of ice pellets.
Southeastern New Brunswick will likely see snow to start but the precipitation will be predominantly rain. The remainder of New Brunswick will see snow. Areas along the New Brunswick/Nova Scotia border may see a period of ice pellets.
In Newfoundland, snow arrives on New Years Day in the evening. The snow will change over to rain along the south coast and on the Avalon. On the west coast, some wrap-around snow is likely as the low departs.
Snow is expected in Labrador.
