Alerts for: Edmundston and Madawaska County

Statements

10:43 AM ADT Friday 31 October 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Edmundston and Madawaska County

Periods of snow likely for both Saturday and Sunday.

A complex low pressure system will approach the Maritimes from the south on Saturday. Rain developing across New Brunswick on Saturday morning is likely to change to or become mixed with snow later on Saturday as cold northeast winds develop during the day. This change is particularly likely for more northern areas Saturday. There should be a shortlived break in the precipitation Saturday night before the main impulse of the system deepens off the coast of Nova Scotia on Sunday. As a result rain and snow will redevelop across New Brunswick Sunday morning and will likely persist well into Sunday night. There is still uncertainty as to exactly how the situation will unfold this weekend so determining snowfall accumulations remains problematic at this point. However some areas of the province..Especially central regions..Could very well see their first significant snowfall of the season.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
