Storm could bring heavy snow to parts of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia


Rain will push across the Maritimes on Wednesday night. The rain will change to snow across most of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

Nova Scotia will remain as rain until Thursday night when the rain transitions to snow. There is a risk of ice pellets or freezing rain during the changeover.

Precipitation will be slow to end, finally exiting Cape Breton on Friday night.


The same weather system will push across most of Newfoundland on Thursday bringing snow to many areas.

Snow is expected along the south coast, central Newfoundland, northeast coast, and the Avalon Peninsula.

While it remains a bit too early to provide specifics, there is the potential for significant amounts of snow across the Avalon Peninsula and Burin Peninsula. Across the southern Avalon Peninsula and Burin Peninsula, precipitation may mix with ice pellets at times.

It does not appear that winds will be overly strong.

Snow will end from the west to east by Friday night.
