The remnants of the Texas low that will bring snow to southern Ontario and Quebec will develop into a new low of the north-eastern coast of the U.S. and track off the coast of Atlantic Canada starting Wednesday morning, where it will impact the region through to Thursday morning.

"At the moment, it looks like Nova Scotia will be the most impacted by the snow," says Weather Network meteorologist Dayna Vettese.

"Snow will move into Newfoundland Wednesday afternoon with the Avalon and Burin Peninsulas being hard hit."

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Nova Scotia on Wednesday, warning that up to 20 cm of snow could fall in parts of the province.

In addition, wind gusts between 30 and 60 km/h will be seen over Nova Scotia and PEI Wednesday.
