Hazardous winter conditions are expected tonight and Tuesday morning.
A low pressure system will develop off the U.S. Seaboard today then intensify into a large winter storm as it moves slowly northeastward toward the Maritimes tonight. Snow at times heavy will develop after midnight and change to or become mixed with ice pellets Tuesday morning. Very strong northeast winds gusting to 90 km/h with even higher gusts possible along the Atlantic coast will give extensive blowing snow and near-zero visibilities early Tuesday. Precipitation will become light late in the day. Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.
