Rain and Snow for Maritimes Wednesday

Laurissa Anyas-Weiss, content producer

March 10, 2009 — A system from the States is currently moving into the Maritimes bringing strong winds, snow, rain and the possibility of freezing rain.

Northern New Brunswick started with snow this morning before switching to a rain/snow mix this afternoon. The southern half of the province will see snow switch over to rain during the evening.

PEI will also see snow switch over to rain overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. There is a chance of freezing rain for PEI and Cape Breton during the evening hours Wednesday.

For Nova Scotia, it will start as rain in southern parts Wednesday afternoon. As the moisture reaches Halifax in the late afternoon hours and encounters colder air, it will briefly turn into snow before it changes back to rain around late Wednesday evening.

Wind will be a significant issue during this weather event with the coastal areas experiencing gusts up to 90km/h. The system will have pulled out by Thursday morning but the strong winds will remain. Following the system is an Arctic cold front bringing icy temperatures that will last until the weekend.

The system will move into Newfoundland later today bringing strong winds and snow that will turn to a rain/snow mix overnight. Strong winds and snow flurries are forecast for Thursday as the cold front moves into the area.
