A low-pressure system will bring some unsettled weather to Atlantic Canada beginning on Monday night.

Across New Brunswick, all areas will see snow to start and the snow will change to rain for southern and central sections with a risk of freezing rain. Northern New Brunswick will remain as snow. 15 to 20 cm of snow is expected in northern sections and about 5 to 10 cm elsewhere.

On Prince Edward Island, snow will change over to rain on Tuesday morning. 5 to 10 centimetres of snowfall is expected. About 20 millimetres of rain is expected.

Nova Scotia will see all rain except for the northern sections. Over the northern sections, no more than 5 centimetres of snow is expected. Meanwhile, heavy rainfall of about 50 millimetres can be expected across the province.

Snow will creep into the southwest corner of Newfoundland on Tuesday morning.

Precipitation will quickly change over to rain. The only area expected to see snow is the west coast. There is a risk of ice pellets and freezing rain also. For southern and western Newfoundland 50 to 70 millimetres are possible Tuesday morning to late Wednesday.

Coastal Labrador will see snow begin Tuesday night and continue into Thursday. There will also be strong winds causing reduced visibility. 15 centimetres of snow is expected.
