    Preliminary Storm Snowfall Forecast Map

    10/28/2011, 9:28:31 AM

    A major coastal storm will bring heavy snow, strong winds and rain to the Maritimes and then into Newfoundland this weekend.


    The worst of the snowstorm looks to be over south-central New Brunswick. Nasty storm for PEI!

    As we get a better handle on the exact track of the storm I will fine-tune the snowfall forecast map.

    In areas that get over 10 cm of snow the combination of wind and heavy, wet snow will lead to some downed tree limbs and possible power outages.

    The track of the storm looks too close to the south coast of Nova Scotia to bring much snowfall to most of Nova Scotia, especially this early in the season. However, there will be a burst of wet snow and strong winds on the back side of the storm Sunday before it ends.

    This is looking like mostly rain for the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, but I can certainly see over 15 cm over the central interior of Newfoundland.
