Storm Expected to hit Atlantic Canada


It looks like an area of low pressure will bring some unsettled weather to Atlantic Canada next week.


On Tuesday the low looks like it will spread snow, ice pellets, rain, and wind over the Maritimes.


On Wednesday it will be Newfoundland's turn. Snow, ice pellets, freezing rain, rain, and strong winds are excepted.


While it remains far too early to provide specific amounts, the risk exists for significant snow in New Brunswick, parts of PEI, and western Newfoundland. Parts of southern Newfoundland could see a prolonged freezing rain event. Nova Scotia could see significant amounts of rain.


Winds may reach gusts to 80 km/h across New Brunswick, 60 km/h on PEI and coastal areas of Nova Scotia could see gusts exceed 100 km/h. Western Newfoundland might also see gusts exceed 100 km/h. Other coastal areas could see gusts to 80 km/h.


This storm could have the potential o cause significant travel disruptions.


Since this system is still several days away, a lot can change. Keep checking back for updates.
