Firm freeze-thaw cycle in Atl. Canada, messy late week storm

Digital writers

Tuesday, February 13, 2018, 8:23 AM - The wild temperature ride continues across Atlantic Canada with frigid wind chills quickly replacing the double digit daytime highs from Monday. Milder weather will spread across the region once again on Wednesday with the potential for a couple of messy late week systems.

"We'll see isolated sea-effect snow across the Maritimes on Tuesday, but especially near coastal sections of Newfoundland," says Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.

Messy late week systems

The next system will impact the region on Thursday with a wintry mix expected in parts of New Brunswick, and rain and a mild southwest flow for areas in Nova Scotia.

"We'll see the familiar pattern with this system that brings rain for the south and snow to northern regions," says The Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. "The second system for Friday will track further to the south with the potential for snow around the north side of the Bay of Fundy and a messy mix for the Avalon where we have seen very little snow so far during February."

WATCH BELOW: Precipitation outlook and timing

Periods of snow will continue across Newfoundland and Labrador late Friday and through Saturday with the potential for blowing snow as the low pressure system deepens somewhat. 

Colder temperatures return for the weekend before another warm-up and milder weather for early next week.
