Significant snow expected across Nova Scotia and eastern Newfoundland


Snow is still expected for parts of the Maritimes and Newfoundland over the next couple of days.


Maritimes

Snow will begin across southern sections of Nova Scotia on Friday morning and spread to the remainder of the province, Prince Edward Island, and eastern New Brunswick on Friday afternoon and evening.


Snowfall amounts will be 10 to 20 cm for most of Nova Scotia, but southern Nova Scotia and parts of Cape Breton Island could see up to 30 cm. 5 to 10 cm is expected across Prince Edward Island and eastern New Brunswick.


Winds will not be overly strong across Nova Scotia but southern and eastern shores could see gusts to 60 km/h. There will still be some blowing snow.


The snow will clear from west to east on Saturday and will come to an end across the region by Saturday evening.


Newfoundland

On Friday night snow will spread across the Avalon Peninsula and Burin Peninsula.


It looks like the Burin Peninsula will see about 10 to 15 cm of snow and the Avalon Peninsula could see 15 to 30 cm of snow.


Winds will gust to 80 km/h across the Avalon Peninsula and Burin Peninsula resulting in blowing snow.


The snow will continue until early on Sunday morning.


Marine Atlantic says that evening crossings on Friday could be impacted and crossings scheduled for Monday and Tuesday could also be impacted.
