REGIONAL WEATHER FORECAST: Mild spell brings risk of flooding!

A sloppy system is set to track across the northern stretches of our region tonight and Saturday. Precipitation that starts before the warm air moves in will begin as snow, then change to rain. Snowfall totals will be near 5 cm in New Brunswick, except for a more substantial 15 to 20 cm in the NW corner of the province. Labrador City is in line to get about 10 cm of new snow tonight and tomorrow. As the wind comes around to the south, temperatures will shoot up into the mid-single digits. That combined with 20 to as much as 40 mm of rain will result in localized flooding. Then winter returns in a hurry thanks to a wind shift to the NW late Saturday into Sunday A stalled low over the Labrador Sea will pump a cold wind down over Atlantic Canada well into next week.
