Storm to impact areas from Ontario to Newfoundland


Ontario

Snow, rain, and strong winds are in store for southern Ontario this evening and Saturday.


Up to 20 cm of snow is possible through Friday evening, with more to come Saturday. For areas north of Lake Erie to as far east as Niagara and Toronto, snow may mix or change over to rain in the evening, reducing snowfall accumulations. Rainfall amounts of 10 to 15 mm are possible for this area.


The winter storm will continue through the day on Saturday. Most of southern Ontario will receive snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 cm. In addition, strong northwest winds gusting up to 80 km/h will develop Saturday afternoon east of Lake Huron, creating blizzard-like conditions at times. Areas adjacent to the northeastern shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario may experience very strong west winds gusting to 100 or 110 km/h Saturday afternoon.


 

Quebec

Significant snowfall amounts, strong winds and blowing snow are expected over almost the entire province of Quebec.


Snow is expected to begin overnight Friday night over Southern Quebec and to reach central and eastern parts of the province during the day on Saturday. Snow may turn to rain over Southern Quebec and the Gaspé Peninsula with the risk of freezing rain during the changeover.


 

Atlantic Canada

Snow is expected across New Brunswick with up to 15 cm expected. In parts of Nova Scotia, rainfall of 25 mm is expected. Winds will gust to 90 km/h in Nova Scotia and on Prince Edward Island with gusts to 150 km/h from Margaree Harbour to Bay St. Lawrence.


Sunday into Monday it looks like Newfoundland will see snow, freezing rain, and rain with this system and along the west coast, gusty winds are expected.
