More snow, blustery winds take aim at Atlantic Canada
As Newfoundland faced significant snow on Saturday. So now the question is: Is Atlantic Canada ready to let its guard down? Hard no, it's March after all, and despite it now being meteorological spring, one of the strongest lows of the season wants to spin up across New England early this week and keep winter alive.
Luckily, Sunday and Monday will be a welcomed respite from the snow, however brief it may be.
By Tuesday afternoon, a powerful nor'easter will be swirling off the coast of Cape Cod and will slowly drift east on Wednesday.

The gusty northeast winds will be problematic, particularly paired with heavy wet snowfall across sections of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick. Conditions will quickly deteriorate by Tuesday evening. Past setups like this have produced snowfall amounts of over 30 cm across inland sections.

As of now, the most impacted commute will be Tuesday evening, with temperatures hovering near the freezing mark, and the snow will be notably slick around the Halifax area. The east wind above 40 km/h will make for dangerously reduced visibility.
Wet snow will continue to spread across the Maritimes Tuesday overnight, lingering into Wednesday. Snow may mix or transition to rainfall along the coast of Nova Scotia but likely remain as all snow across New Brunswick and P.E.I.
The system will gradually weaken as it meanders through the Atlantic provinces, but it will still be enough to end the week on a dreary note.
