Two Systems to Hit Atlantic Canada This Week

A rather disorganized system will bring some unsettled weather to Atlantic Canada over the next few days.

On Tuesday rain will move into New Brunswick. By Tuesday night Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia will see rain, which will continue through Wednesday.

Most of the Maritimes will see about 5 to 15 mm of rain, southern sections of Nova Scotia could get 20 to 30 mm.

Newfoundland will get some mixed precipitation. The Avalon and Central will remain as rain, but on the west coast the rain will likely transition over to snow.

Gander east to St John's will get about 5 to 10 mm. Grand Falls-Windsor west to Corner Brook will see about 15 to 25 mm. The southwest coast of the Island will see about 30 to 40 mm and 50 mm locally is possible for the Port aux Basques, Burgeo, to Connaigre region.

For Corner Brook and the Great Northern Peninsula, 5 to 10 cm is possible. Through Gros Morne National Park, the amounts will be higher. Some accumulation is possible.

A stronger system is on the way for the weekend, some areas could receive significant snowfall and strong winds. Keep checking back for updates.
