Parts of Newfoundland saw just about everything but the kitchen sink Saturday, and while those messy conditions will continue through the overnight, forecasters are keeping a watchful eye on another system that may significantly impact Atlantic Canada on Monday.
"Forecast guidance shows a low pressure system passing near Nova Scotia on Monday that will gradually intensify as it approaches Newfoundland," said EC in a special weather statement. "However, there is a large uncertainty in the strength of the storm and its speed."

While the snowfall accumulations are yet to be determined, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and Newfoundland, in anticipation of the storm.
"There may also be high winds [associated with the storm], especially over eastern Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton and the Eastern Mainland. It does appear that the bulk of the snow will fall during the morning over mainland Nova Scotia, while Cape Breton could see snow through the afternoon."
Residents are asked to keep a close eye on the forecast as details as warnings may be required.
