Special Weather StatementIssued at 22:25 Tuesday 20 March 2018
Snow expected over much of New Brunswick beginning near midnight Wednesday night and persisting into Thursday...
A low pressure system will approach the Maritimes from the southwest on Wednesday and will likely track across eastern Nova Scotia on Thursday. Snow will develop ahead of this system near midnight Wednesday night and persist well into Thursday over most areas. Snow may mix or change to ice pellets and freezing rain over easternmost sections of the province on Thursday. At this time the most likely areas for the highest snow amounts are over the eastern half of the province, and snowfall warnings may be required for these areas once the system draws nearer.
The long range models have shown a trend of slowing down the speed of the storm which will delay the onset of snow for Wednesday night. This means the impacts from the snow will be felt during the day on Thursday impacting early morning commuters, those traveling, and possibly schools.
The public are advised to monitor future forecasts as this system and its impacts become better defined. Warnings associated with this storm could be issued Wednesday morning.
