The nor'easter that is currently impacting the Northeast U.S. will continue to drift toward southern Nova Scotia by Thursday, leaving a small accumulation of snow from extreme southeastern Quebec into northwestern New Brunswick and the Gaspe.
The good news is that the storm will start to weaken later tonight and Thursday, so we are not expecting major impacts for the Maritimes.
