Another messy weekend in Atlantic Canada
Saturday, March 15, 2014, 10:43 AM -
Yet another system is set to bring a messy mix to to Atlantic Canada this weekend.
New Brunswick is in for snow and some mixing, while Nova Scotia is in for rain.
The system is also bringing stiff winds, especially in Newfoundland.
"As a result, there are blowing snow and winter storm warnings in Newfoundland," Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani said Saturday, adding Newfoundland and parts of Cape Breton Island were also sporting wind warnings.
Southwestern Newfoundland and northern New Brunswick are on track for the heaviest snowfall, although Vaswani says milder temperatures are expected in those provinces.
It is likely to be a rain-only event for areas south of Fredericton.
And the snow that will fall won't be a match for the storm of the past week, which brought major snowfall to Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick, heavy rain to Nova Scotia and strong winds to Newfoundland.
The system will be strongest in the Maritimes beginning in the afternoon, and in Newfoundland beginning in the early evening.
"On the back end of the system tonight, precipitation may change over to snow in the Maritimes as temperatures fall," Vaswani says.
