Winter storm watch in effect for:

  • Edmundston and Madawaska County

A winter storm will impact New Brunswick tonight into Saturday. Periods of light snow over northwest regions today will continue tonight and slowly spread east. On Saturday snow will spread across the entire region with amounts near 15 cm possible by Saturday night. Also winds will increase during the day and give some areas of blowing snow causing reduced visibilities. Winter storm warnings have been issued for the remainder of the province.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. 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.

Winter Storm Watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Stay up to date with Weatheradio or your local media. Email reports of severe weather to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #NBStorm.
