Warnings

4:56 AM AST Friday 30 January 2015
Winter storm warning in effect for:

  • Miramichi and area

Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

A winter storm will impact New Brunswick tonight into Saturday. Flurries today will change to snow heavy at times near midnight in
the southwest and spread northward overnight. Strong winds will develop tonight or Saturday and will likely result in blowing snow
causing reduced visibilities. The heavy snow will taper to periods of light snow over western areas Saturday afternoon. Snowfall
amounts of 20 to 35 centimetres are forecast across the region with the heaviest amounts falling Saturday morning.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas.

Winter Storm Warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Stay up to date with Weatheradio or your local media. Email reports of severe weather to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #NBStorm.
