Maritimes: blizzard warnings for Nova Scotia, then Newfoundland

Monday, February 8, 2016, 6:44 AM – Another winter wallop is poised to fall on the Maritimes Monday, with Newfoundland next in its path.

Blizzard warnings cover all of Nova Scotia, which will be hit hardest by the strong winds and snowfall of more than 40 cm in some places. That will make for terrible visibility for drivers through the day.

“The strongest snow will be this afternoon through the night,” Weather Network meteorologist Kevin MacKay said early Monday. “Newfoundland will begin to see the snow move in this evening.”

Eastern Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, and parts of Newfoundland’s Avalon and Burin peninsulas are in line for the heaviest snows, but significant amounts will fall across Atlantic Canada.
