Alerts for: Acadian Peninsula
5:05 AM ADT Friday 31 October 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Acadian Peninsula
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 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. It is difficult at this time to determine exactly how much snow will accumulate over the weekend but some parts 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.
