New Year's Eve Forecast


New Year's Eve is almost here and it's safe to say few people will miss 2020. As we look forward to the year ahead we will be ringing in the new year a bit differently this year. So whether you're spending the time quietly at home or having a fireworks display, here is the weather forecast for New Year's Eve.


Atlantic Canada

We could have a weather system rolling into Atlantic Canada just in time for New Year's Eve. The low has the potential to bring snow to Labrador, New Brunswick, and parts of Newfoundland. Rain is expected in Nova Scotia. Eastern Newfoundland will probably see snow transition to rain.


Quebec

Snow is possible over most southern sections of Quebec but should taper off as the day progresses. As the snow clears from west to east, there might still be a few isolated flurries.


Ontario

New Year's Eve should be nice for Ontario. There will be a system moving out on Wednesday and then another system moving in on New Years Day.


Prairies

Weather conditions should be fair for the most part. There could be a few flurries along the Alberta Foothills and southeastern sections of the province and perhaps as far north as the Edmonton region. Accumulations will be minimal if any.


British Columbia

Any interior snow will clear in the morning before the next Pacific system moves onshore on Thursday night.
