Special weather statement in effect for:

Fredericton and Southern York County
Potential for accumulating snow over parts of northern and western New Brunswick on Wednesday.

Snow is expected to develop over much of northern and western New Brunswick Tuesday night and then continue into Wednesday. Although it is too early to forecast detailed amounts, total accumulations up to or possibly exceeding 10 centimetres may fall in some areas, especially over higher terrain. It is likely that the snow will become mixed with or change to rain in the east on Wednesday. Precipitation should taper to flurries or showers on Wednesday night.

As this is an early season event, there is considerable uncertainty in the amounts of snow that could accumulate. Slight changes in the track or intensity of the low pressure system bringing the precipitation could significantly affect the amount and type of precipitation that falls. It is possible that snowfall warnings will be issued closer to the event.

Meteorologists at Environment and Climate Change Canada will monitor the development of this system and provide more information in future forecasts as it becomes available.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #NBStorm.
