Nearly one week after a major winter snowstorm hit New England and Atlantic Canada with heavy snowfall and hurricane-force winds, a blizzard will close out the weekend in parts of Atlantic Canada.
Conditions will continue to worsen across Atlantic Canada through tonight into a south-to-north fashion as the potent storm that brought snow to the Carolinas arrives.
An all-out blizzard will unfold from New Brunswick to easternmost Quebec. Southern and central Nova Scotia can expect similar conditions despite the day starting with rain.
Farther north, an intrusion of warm air will lead to a wintry mix or a changeover to rain along the Newfoundland coast with all snow across northern Newfoundland.
The snow will unleash between 30 and 45 cm (12 and 18 inches) of snow across central New Brunswick, the Gaspe Peninsula and Anticosti Island.
The pace of the storm should prevent higher totals, according to AccuWeather.com Canadian Weather Expert Brett Anderson.
On Monday, the worst of the windswept snow will center on central and western Labrador as howling winds significantly blow and drift the snow across the Canadian Maritimes.
