Powerful Nor-easter Eyes Atlantic Canada

Winter storm watches are in effect for Nova Scotia and most of Newfoundland as a nor'easter eyes the region.

Snow is expected to move into Nova Scotia on Tuesday night and will continue through Wednesday evening. The heaviest snow will fall over the eastern and northern sections of the province. In these areas, snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 cm are expected. Winds will also gust from 50 to 70 km/h resulting in blowing snow.

The snow will move into Newfoundland before dawn on Wednesday and will move away by Thursday evening. Sea-effect snow will continue into Friday for some areas. This low will impact the Avalon, southeast coast, and most of central Newfoundland. Snowfall amounts will be the highest over Burin, Avalon, and the northeast coast. Snowfall amounts of 30 to 50 cm is possible. Precipitation over the Avalon could transition to rain, resulting in less snow. Winds will gust from 60 to 90 km/h in some areas.
