Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

A strong low pressure system will be moving into the Maritimes on Sunday. Snow will develop and push into the province during the morning and spread eastward during day. The snow will intensify as the center of the low pressure system approaches during the afternoon and evening.

Northern New Brunswick will stay below freezing and snowfall amounts are expected to range between 15 to 25 cm during the day, with more snow Sunday night. In southern regions, closer to the Fundy coast, temperatures will continue to rise into the evening. 15 cm is expected before the snow changes over to freezing rain and heavy rain.

Strong winds will create blowing snow Sunday afternoon and evening.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
