Messy Mix of Weather Heading to Atlantic Canada
A low pressure system will track into the Maritimes and Newfoundland over the course of Saturday evening through the remainder of the weekend.
It looks like a rain-snow mix will fall across western New Brunswick beginning on Saturday afternoon.
Then rain will spread across most of the Maritimes Saturday night.
By Sunday morning, the rain will change to ice pellets and freezing rain across most of New Brunswick and most of Nova Scotia. Southern sections of Nova Scotia will likely remain as rain. Northwestern New Brunswick will transition to snow. On Prince Edward Island, the rain will change to ice pellets and eventually snow.
On Saturday night, Newfoundland will see a round of snow across most areas except for the southwest coast, which will see rain.
Then by Sunday afternoon, the snow will make it to southern Newfoundland. Snow will spread across much of the Island except for the Great Northern Peninsula. The snow will move out of Newfoundland by Monday morning.
It remains too early to provide specific precipitation amounts. Keep checking back for updates.
