New Brunswick's first winter storm of the season is expected to settle in across the province by the end of the week. 

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the entire province.

"While it is too soon to provide specific details on precipitation, there is a good possibility of accumulating snow, heavy rain and strong winds," Environment Canada said in a statement.

The national weather agency said the storm will likely develop on Friday and continue throughout the weekend.

Ryan Snoddon, a CBC meteorologist, said there is still uncertainty around the upcoming storm.

"It's one we'll be tracking all week," he said.
