Special Weather Statement For Southern, Eastern N.B.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for most of southern and eastern New Brunswick heading into the weekend.

The weather agency says to expect significant snowfall between 10 to 20 cm in regions like Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John, Sussex, St. Stephen, Kent County, Grand Manan and Grand Lake.

Heavy snow is also expected for the Fundy and Kouchibouguac national parks.

“There is considerable uncertainty in the timing of when the snow will start and when it will end,” said Environment Canada’s website.

“The snow is expected to be wet in nature and may be mixed with rain, especially along coastal areas.”

The statement, which also warns about northeasterly wind gusts of up to 70 kilometres per hour, is expected to last from Saturday morning until late Saturday night.

Environment Canada encourages the public to monitor alerts and forecasts and to report severe weather if they see it.
