There's no sign yet of winter loosening its grip on Atlantic Canada.

Forecasters are warning of another storm headed for the region that's expected to deliver an unwelcome blast of snow and rain.

Environment Canada says snowfall amounts up to 35 centimetres are expected in New Brunswick starting today and continuing Thursday.

Strong winds and blizzard conditions are expected in northern areas, while southern New Brunswick should prepare for ice pellets and freezing rain in addition to heavy snow.

Rain will be the biggest problem in Nova Scotia, where between 20 and 50 millimetres are expected with the possibility of blowing snow, ice pellets and freezing rain in northern areas.

Similar conditions are expected for parts of Newfoundland.

Along the island's south coast, forecasters say warm temperatures and heavy rainfall could lead to a significant snow melt and localized flooding.

Heavy snow, strong winds, freezing rain and ice pellets are also in the forecast for parts of Prince Edward Island.
