Southwestern and central New Brunswick can expect some significant snowfall for much of Wednesday, according to a statement by Environment Canada.
The weather agency issued snowfall warnings early on Tuesday, stating that central regions of the province can expect up to 30 centimetres of snow.
It also predicts about 15 centimetres of snowfall over southwestern New Brunswick beginning around noon on Wednesday.
“Snowfall rates will be significant during Wednesday’s evening commute in many areas, leading to difficult driving conditions,” reads the statement from Environment Canada.
“Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”
Warnings are currently in place for Fredericton and Southern York County, Oromocto and Sunbury County, St. Stephen and Northern Charlotte County, Stanley, Doaktown and Blackville, and Woodstock and Carleton County.
Environment Canada says the warning could be expanded to northern New Brunswick.
