Special Weather StatementIssued at 21:13 Tuesday 22 January 2019
Significant rain and mild temperatures likely Thursday.
A front will approach the Maritimes from the west on Wednesday and cross the Maritimes Wednesday night. This front will usher in much milder air and strengthening southwest winds. Snow will spread across New Brunswick Wednesday and it will be followed by rain throughout most of the province by Thursday morning. A period of freezing rain is likely during the transition from snow to rain especially over western and northern regions.
This system may intensify during the day Thursday bringing further rainfall and significant snowmelt which could lead to potential flooding. Areas that are vulnerable to excess rain falling on frozen ground may have issues with water not being absorbed or draining off well.
A return to colder, drier weather is expected on Friday.
