Weather bomb to hit Atlantic Canada by this Friday

Atlantic Canada needs to prepare for another cyclone and snowstorm from the northeast that will then head towards the eastern U.S. seaboard. The storm is likely to worsen the winter conditions in the area, promising snow, icy precipitation, and a blizzard. The region will experience extremely low visibility, and travel in such conditions is not recommended. 

The East Coast is also under the influence of frigid weather conditions, with frequent ice and snowfall. Travel continues to be negligible amidst the storms. And yet, even dangerous is the flood warning in the area as Newfoundland continues to receive heavy rains in the relatively warmer conditions. There is a chance of localized flooding in the area. 

A ‘weather bomb,’ also known as a bomb cyclone, is under formation near the Maritimes. Formed with a low-pressure center and stronger edges, the cyclone is fast approaching and might hit Maritimes this coming Friday. The cyclone will bring along rain, ice, and snow and travel towards north from south as Saturday approaches.  

Matt Grinter, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, shared, “Blizzard conditions are likely for Prince Edward Island and the northern shores of Nova Scotia Friday overnight and into Saturday morning. Travel is not recommended at these times as visibility, snowpack, drifts, will all make for dangerous travel.”

Nova Scotia will experience warmer conditions, yet the water from the rain is bound to freeze in the chilled atmosphere. Eastbound Halifax to Cape Breton stands to receive rainfall from 20 to 50 mm, while the northwestern regions receive heavy snowfall. 

New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island will continue to receive 15-30+ cm of snow, and 20-40 cm of rain is to fall in Newfoundland. “Sections of the Trans-Canada and Highway 430 could be slippery as a result of the freezing rain,” says Grinter. Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, through Prince Edward Island, will also experience high speed winds beginning from 60-80 km/h ranging to a high of 80-110 km/h.
