Sunday, March 9, 2014, 9:58 PM -
Just when you thought it was coming to an end, winter comes roaring back.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Eastern Townships of Quebec, the Gaspé Peninsula and parts of the Maritimes, where significant snowfall is expected Wednesday evening and through the overnight.
“This system's track remains uncertain,” said Environment Canada in a special weather statement Sunday afternoon. “But models agree that regions near New England, and the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, will be affected.”
The storm will develop over the southern United States Tuesday and track along the Appalachians toward the Maritimes Wednesday.
Current models indicate that heavy snowfall is heading in for New Brunswick and P.E.I, while precipitation type remains unclear for Nova Scotia.
“The system is expected to bring significant amounts of snow or rain to Nova Scotia,” said EC.
As we mentioned, there is still a lot of uncertainty in the track of the low at this time, so be sure to check back as we continue to monitor the development of this system.
