An area of low pressure centred just south of southern Nova Scotia is bringing some unsettled weather to Canada's Ocean Playground and will bring some unsettled weather to Newfoundland later this weekend.
Heavy snow is expected across the northern sections of Nova Scotia. Tonight and Sunday areas under the snowfall warning may see up to 30 cm of snow combined with strong winds. Areas along the immediate Atlantic Coast will see a rain-snow mix.
Snow will push across Newfoundland early on Sunday morning. The snow will change to rain along the south coast, Avalon Peninsula, and central Newfoundland. Precipitation will remain as snow along the west coast.
For the Avalon Peninsula and Burin Peninsula, up to 30 mm of rain is expected. In central Newfoundland, only about 2 mm is expected. Central and western sections of Newfoundland could see 15 to 25 cm of snow combined with wind gusts to 70 km/h.
For southeastern Labrador, 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected.
Marine Atlantic has cancelled ferry crossings for this evening. The crossings scheduled for Sunday may also be cancelled.
