Statements

9:52 PM AST Sunday 16 December 2018
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Sussex - Kennebecasis Valley and Kings County

Significant snowfall likely Monday and into Tuesday.

A slow moving low pressure system will track south of Nova Scotia on Monday and then cross Cape Breton Island Monday night. Snow will develop Monday morning in the southwest, and will spread across the province by the afternoon. The snow will persist into Tuesday. Total snowfall amounts of up to 20 centimetres or more are possible for communities across southern and eastern New Brunswick. Note that this is below warning criteria, which is 15 cm over a 12 hours period, because the snowfall is expected to be more gradual and spread over 18 to 24 hours.

Additionally, gusty northwesterly winds are expected on Tuesday. These winds may cause reduced visibility in blowing snow.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NBstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NBStorm.
