Alerts for: Grand Falls and Victoria County

Statements

3:53 PM ADT Friday 31 October 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Grand Falls and Victoria County

Periods of snow expected 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. On Saturday evening much of New Brunswick will be experiencing snow occasionally mixed with rain except for the Fundy coast and southeasternmost regions of the province where mostly rain can be expected. As is the case with most early season snowfalls there will be some initial melting making it more difficult to assess snowfall accumulations in the forecast period. There is also some discrepancy between various guidance at this time regarding the location of highest accumulations. At this time snowfall amounts of about 10 centimetres are likely over central regions of the province by dawn Sunday with northwest regions seeing lesser amounts. As mentioned above southeastermost regions should see mostly rain.

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.
