Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Southeast New Brunswick, with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm expected.
A low pressure system will approach the Maritimes from the southwest today. Snow is expected to spread across New Brunswick this afternoon and intensify this evening. Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres are expected, with possibly up to 30 centimetres for eastern central portions of the province.
Snow will taper to flurries Thursday morning.
Over southernmost areas of the province, the snow is forecast to become mixed with ice pellets and then change over to freezing rain or rain before ending.
“Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult,” Environment Canada warns. “If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.”
Area residents are urged to continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports using #NBStorm.
