Winter storm watch in effect for:
- Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
A low pressure system will approach the Maritimes on Monday and cross eastern Nova Scotia on Tuesday. Snow at times heavy will develop over southern New Brunswick Monday afternoon and spread northeastward later in the day. Snow will continue Monday night along with strong winds giving reduced visibilities in blowing snow. Conditions will improve Tuesday morning as the low moves away. While only 10 to 15 centimetres is expected over southern New Brunswick by Monday evening, accumulations will continue until Tuesday morning, with total snowfall amounts expected to be in the 15 to 30 centimetre range for parts of southern and eastern New Brunswick.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. 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.
