This system will have a very heavy area of snow with it. The heaviest swath of snow should occur in the heart of New Brunswick with 25-35 cm possible. Nova Scotia should receive 10-15 cm of snow before a changeover to rain. The same goes for Newfoundland with 10-15 cm of snow on the Avalon Peninsula before a change to rain. The remainder of Newfoundland should receive 25+ cm of snow.

The winds will be a big story for Atlantic Canada across all the provinces. Very strong wind gusts are forecast to impact all of Atlantic Canada Thursday night and throughout Friday. The image below shows the Canadian forecast model’s solution to sustained wind speeds Friday. The brown areas are sustained winds of 80 km/h or 44+ knots. Again, these are sustained winds and don’t include wind gusts. Gusts could reach 140 km/h in parts of Newfoundland Friday and up to 100 km/h in the Maritimes. The axis of strongest winds will again depend on the exact track of this storm but nonetheless, Thursday night and through the day Friday will be very windy across all of Atlantic Canada.
