Snow arrives in Nova Scotia, heads toward Newfoundland

Nova Scotia

Snow is falling steadily across most of Nova Scotia this morning.

Central Nova Scotia will see 20 to 30 cm between now and Monday. Most of northeastern Nova Scotia will see an additional 50 to 80 cm.

The Nova Scotia Department of Public Works says all plows are out doing their best to clear the roads and highways and it will take some time to get roads back to good conditions. Earlier this morning a number of transport trucks stuck in the snow on Highway 118 near Exit 14.


Special weather statements are in effect for most of Newfoundland.

Snow is expected to start today and continue into Tuesday for southwestern Newfoundland and parts of western and central Newfoundland. 20 to 40 cm of snow is expected. Winds will gust between 60 and 90 km/h.

Today through Tuesday night, the northeast coast of Newfoundland from White Bay to Terra Nova will receive about 30 to 50 cm of snow and winds gusting from 60 to 70 km/h.

Across the Clarenville, Bonavista, and northwestern Avalon area, 30 to 50 cm of snow is possible. St. John's and the northeastern Avalon will get 15 to 25 cm, with the bulk falling on Tuesday. Up to 25 mm of rain could also fall over parts of the northern Avalon. Winds will gust between 60 and 80 km/h.
