Snow Accumulation Forecast

March 22, 2009; 3:54 PM ET

Strong upper-level energy dropping into the Maritimes Sunday night will initiate a surface storm just south of Nova Scotia by Monday. The storm, while not terribly strong, will only drift to the southeast through Monday night. This will put a large part of Nova Scotia and PEI into the favorable region for snow. The heaviest snow will be Monday and Monday evening, then as dry air gets entrained into the system the snow will gradually taper off and become more intermittent late Monday night. Here is what i think for accumulations.....

Saint John, NB...... 1-4 cm

Fredericton, NB...... 3-5 cm

Moncton, NB...... 6-9 cm

Yarmouth, NS..... 2-4 cm

Halifax, NS.... 8-14 cm

Amherst, NS...... 10-16 cm

Truro, NS.... 14-20 cm

Wolfville, NS..... 8-14 cm

Liverpool, NS...... 5-9 cm

New Glasgow, NS...... 12-16 cm

Port Hawkesbury, NS...... 5-8 cm

Sydney, NS...... 1-3 cm

Springhill, NS...... 12-17 cm

Charlottetown, PEI.....5-9 cm
