Wednesday, March 18, 2015, 12:04 AM - Another storm is making its way into the east coast, while precipitation moves into the west. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday.

Atlantic Canada

  • Maritimes: Yet another storm will be making its way into the east coast, bringing more than 30 cm to parts of Nova Scotia Tuesday into Wednesday. The system will move eastward through the night and taper to flurries by Wednesday overnight. Strong winds will make for blowing snow, not only from this new system, but from the snow on the ground from the last one.
  • Newfoundland: This latest storm begins to affect the island by Wednesday into Thursday, with snow and strong winds of up to 80 kilometres per hour.
  • Atlantic Canada Spring Outlook: The stormy pattern across Atlantic Canada this winter will likely continue into April with the potential for late-season winter-like storms, according to The Weather Network’s 2015 Spring Outlook for March, April and May.

Ontario and Quebec

  • Ontario: Cooler air will remain in place through the week with a brief return to seasonal values Friday.
  • Quebec: Blowing snow advisories were issued for parts of southern Quebec Tuesday night. The conditions are expected to taper by Wednesday morning with chilly temperatures remaining in place.
  • Ontario Spring Outlook: Arctic air will linger deep into spring, creating the potential for late season snowfalls in parts of Ontario, according to The Weather Network’s 2015 Spring Outlook for March, April and May

Western Canada

  • Prairies: "After a wintry slap in the face for southern Alberta, snow and mixed precipitation has returned to the Prairies and will continue through Wednesday," says Weather Network meteorologist Erin Wenckstern. Between 5 and 10 cm of snow is expected in most places. Pincher Creek, Alta. will see the heaviest snow with up to 15 cm accumulation.
  • British Columbia: Showers and snow will track north  to south through Wednesday, reaching Vancouver by the evening.
  • West coast Spring Outlook: B.C. is ahead of the pack in Canada, having experienced spring-like weather already in the latter half of winter. Expect March, however to be close to seasonal in temperature. After a cold few days to start the month in the Prairies, a period of spring-like temperatures is expected through the second week of March. The mild temperatures will not be here to stay
