REGIONAL WEATHER FORECAST: Dangerous storm set to strike on Sunday

We’re about to experience a blast of weather as a powerful winter storm tracks across Atlantic Canada with as much as 80 cm of snow, 70 mm of rain, hours of freezing rain and wind gusts to 80 km/h. The mess will reach the Maritimes overnight Saturday into Sunday and spread to NL through the afternoon and evening. The centre of the storm will track up the Bay of Fundy across to the Gulf of St Lawrence then over Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula. The heaviest snow will fall on the western edge of the track with heavy rain to the south and east. An extended period of freezing rain is likely directly beneath the storm’s core. As the low pulls away on Monday, the wind comes around to the NW and that will bring a drop in temperature and onshore snow squalls. After a brief lull between systems, we can expect another rain/snow mix late Wednesday into Thursday.
