- New Brunswick is in for another weekend winter storm, which will hit the province on Thursday.
- The approaching front, according to Snoddon, will move up into New Brunswick this afternoon and tonight, dropping temperatures as rain turns to ice pellets and then snow.
- On Friday, the province will be blanketed in snow, with snowfall rates ranging from three to five centimeters per hour in some areas.
Another weekend winter storm is going to New Brunswick, and it’ll hit the province on Thursday.
According to CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon, the province is set to get a wallop of wintry weather starting Thursday afternoon with rain and ice pellets in southern regions and ending Saturday morning with snowfall totals of 30 to 50 centimeters possible.
According to Snoddon, the arriving front will move up into New Brunswick this afternoon, including tonight, dropping temperatures as rain turns into ice pellets and then snow.
As the temperature drops into Friday morning, the snow will start wet and become fluffier.
As northerly winds pick up and gust 40 to 50 km/h, the fluffy snow will increase the chance of localized blowing snow, with the strongest gusts expected in the southeast, according to Snoddon.
The province will be blanketed in snow on Friday, with snowfall rates of three to five centimeters per hour possible in some areas.
According to Snoddon, the snow will most likely mix with ice pellets throughout the day on Friday and then into Friday night along the Fundy coast, with most of the snowfall ending by Saturday morning.
By the time the storm passes on Saturday, snowfall totals in the southern half of the province are expected to be around 30 cm, with up to 50 cm in the southeastern regions.
Environment Canada has released snowfall warnings for the northern half of the province and winter storm warnings for the southern half, based on similar forecasts.
The warnings state that “due to accumulating snow, surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots could become difficult to navigate.”
This is the 5th winter storm of 2022, with heavy snowfall occurring on five of the year’s six weekends.
