Snowfall Update

November 7, 2012; 5:23 PM ET


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.

Snowstorm forms later this week out West

A much larger storm system will form Thursday and turn into a significant snow and wind producer through the weekend as it tracks east then northeast.

The track has shifted a little farther east from yesterday, which puts the Winnipeg, Manitoba, area into the steady snow on Saturday.

Parts of the southern Prairies could experience some blizzardlike conditions Friday into Saturday as the wind and cold increase, along with the snow.
