March 4, 2011 — Snow for some, rain for others. People in New Brunswick have a messy mix of weather on the way.

It's the same system that's set to bring up to 50 mm of rain to parts of southern Ontario and Quebec, and up to 30 cm of snow to communities further north. By Saturday, it's expected to bring a mix of conditions to the province of New Brunswick.

“We'll start to get some flurries through the overnight hours, and then some light flurries Saturday morning,” says Elena Grigorenko, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “The storm will really pick up Saturday evening, with showers and moderate rain affecting most of the province.”

New Brunswick has had a tough winter, with one snow storm after another barrelling across the province throughout December, January and February. The city of Moncton broke a record for snow on the ground in February. In some cases, snowbanks have become an obstacle for firefighters and drivers.

The most recent storm brought light amounts of snow to New Brunswick earlier this week.
