Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Oromocto and Sunbury County

Hazardous winter conditions are expected. Significant amounts of snow are expected.

A low pressure system approaching the Maritimes tonight will track across Nova Scotia on Thursday. Snow at times heavy will develop across much of New Brunswick this evening before tapering off on Thursday afternoon. Total snowfall amounts of 30 to 40 centimetres are expected with this system but could possibly reach 50 centimetres over parts of southeast New Brunswick. Additionally strong northerly winds developing along areas adjacent to the Gulf of St Lawrence will cause blowing snow over those regions for much of Thursday morning.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
