A significant winter storm is headed in our direction with snowfall warnings issued for the southern part of the province and Nova Scotia. The storm is expected to move into our region this evening and dump up to 20 cms of snow before moving out by mid-day tomorrow. The storm is accompanied by strong winds that will gust up to 70 km/h in the greater Saint John area. Snowfall amounts range between 10 to 15 cms for central and northern regions of the province.

The news is worse for Nova Scotia – the forecast indicates that province will bear the brunt of the storm with snowfall amounts of between 30 and 40 cms predicted. Winds will be even stronger through that province with gusts of between 90 and 96 km/h.

Just as the clean up is nearing completion following this storm – another system is forecast to move into the area on Wednesday bringing either rain or snow depending on the track which is still uncertain at this point.
