Just as parts of the Maritimes were recovering from the system that hit the region on Tuesday, a new system is set to move into Atlantic Provinces starting early Saturday morning.
A low is expected to track across the Great Lakes and into the Atlantic region, likely bringing with it a combination of messy conditions.
The expected precipitation will likely transition from snow to ice pellets. The ice pellets will likely change into freezing rain and then into rain across the southern parts of New Brunswick.
“It has been quite mild in the Maritimes on average,” said Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. ”Even though there’s snow and freezing rain, those conditions will change over to rain as warmer air arrives.”
While southern New Brunswick braces for freezing rain, the northern parts of the province could see an accumulation of 10 centimetres of snow, with temperatures hovering just below freezing during the start of the system.
