Regional Weather Forecast

Residents of the Avalon are bracing themselves for another shot of winter. A powerful storm tracking off the eastern seaboard will slide just south of the Avalon on Wednesday. Snowfall will likely be in the 15 to 20 cm range. Strong southeast winds will cause blowing snow and very poor visibility through the afternoon and well into the evening. A strong north wind wrapping around the backside of the low will pull down more cold air and fuel steady onshore snow late Wednesday across Cape Breton, PEI’s north shore regions and northern mainland Nova Scotia — where the winds pick-up moisture as they cross the Northumberland Strait. One more “cold day” before a welcome warm-up — Friday will be fair and milder with temperatures expected to flirt with the freezing mark. The next weather event will approach from the south-west on Saturday with rain and very mild temperatures. That system is not expected to linger — Sunday will be cooler, but quiet.
