A wind warning has been issued for the Acadian Peninsula.

Wave heights are forecast to be up to four metres.

High tides and storm surge may result in coastal flooding and erosion along the shoreline.

Snowfall warnings are in effect for Campbellton and Restigouche County and Edmundston and Madawaska County. They can expect 15 centimetres of snow or more.

A special weather statement was issued for Grand Falls and Victoria County and Mount Carleton-Renous Highway, where snowfall amounts may exceed 10 cm.
