    Storm Snowfall Forecast Map Update

    3/19/2013, 10:19:50 AM

    Here is our latest update for the storm impacting Quebec and Atlantic Canada through Wednesday.


    So far, 27 cm reported at Montreal (YUL) this afternoon. Heavy snow has shifted away, but there will continue to be lighter, more intermittent snow into this evening.

    We also extended the 30 cm+ zone into parts of New Brunswick due to the favorable mid-level storm track. A dry slot will cut down on the snowfall across far southern New Brunswick Wednesday morning, while lighter, but steady snow continues farther north and northeast.

    Models have trended a little colder over Nova Scotia, which makes sense with such low dewpoints in place, so we have adjusted the amounts upward, including Halifax.

    Snow will change over to mixed precipitation across parts of southern Nova Scotia for a time overnight tonight with some rain across the extreme south coast. It does look like this quick hitting event will be mostly or all snow for Halifax tonight.
