MONDAY: UNSETTLED WEATHER RETURNS
The first of the week's low pressure systems has started tracking across Atlantic Canada, with snow spreading across New Brunswick and a mix moving north through Nova Scotia.
That pattern will continue through the day, with milder temperatures gradually turning snow to rain on the southern end of the Maritimes, and snow persisting farther north.
Most of Nova Scotia will see 5 to 10 cm of snow from this first system, while the northern regions and most of New Brunswick will see between 10 and 15 cm. The areas that are expecting to see rain will experience up to 20 mm and there is the chance for freezing rain in the south along the rain/snow transition line.
This system will mainly bring snow when it reaches Newfoundland by the evening hours and will track across the island into Tuesday. Snowfall accumulations will range between 10 to 25 cm in the western regions while places from Marystown to St. John’s can expect to see between 5 to 15 cm.
LOOK AHEAD: SERIES OF STORMS FOR ACTIVE WEEK
The early week's taste of snow isn't the only one on the menu for this week in Atlantic Canada with an active storm track set to bring a series of systems into the region.
The second system follows quickly on the heels of the first, with snow to start for the Maritimes. As this storm takes a track slightly farther to the north, snow is expected to change to rain Tuesday night for southwestern Nova Scotia and the Atlantic coast.
Additional snow and rain are expected with the third system, set to move into the region on Thursday.
