A nor'easter moving along the U.S. Eastern Seaboard will bring severe weather to the Maritime provinces from Tuesday to Thursday and Newfoundland from Thursday to Saturday.

It looks like snow will move into Nova Scotia on Tuesday night and will spread to the remainder of the Maritimes by Wednesday morning. Snow is expected to change to rain across central and south Nova Scotia on Wednesday and will change back to snow as the low departs on Thursday.

This storm will bring strong winds to the area, particularly across Nova Scotia.

On Thursday afternoon snow is expected to move into southern Newfoundland. Snow is expected across most of Newfoundland Thursday, Friday, and into Saturday. Some mixed precipitation is possible on the Avalon Peninsula.

Strong winds are also expected.

It's still too early to discuss specific precipitation amounts but keep checking back for updates.

Another low will move across Atlantic Canada on Sunday into Monday.
