Forecast guidance is indicating that a low pressure system near Cape
Hatteras on Friday will deepen rapidly as it sweeps up the atantic
coast to pass south of Nova Scotia on Saturday then move towards
Newfoundland on Sunday.
This storm will give very strong northeasterlies to the region and
periods of snow and blowing snow, spreading from west to east
beginning late Friday with the main snowfall expected Saturday.
It is too early for good estimates of snowfall amounts, but some
guidance is indicating amounts in excess of 40 centimetres are
possible for parts of Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.
Strong northeasterlies and northerlies over the gulf of st.
Lawrence may also give higher than normal water levels, and will push
pack ice into north to northeast facing shorelines.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.
