Easter weekend weather to be messy across Maritimes

Messy weather across the Maritimes has prompted special weather statements for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

Snow expected across the Maritimes on Saturday

Messy weather across the Maritimes has prompted special weather statements for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. 

New Brunswick and all of P.E.I. are under a special weather statement for Saturday. Rain and freezing rain are expected to start in the morning before changing to snow as the system reaches eastern Nova Scotia on Saturday. 

Environment Canada says snowfall amounts could exceed 15 centimetres, especially over central and northeastern New Brunswick and western Prince Edward Island. 

"Brisk northwest winds will develop in the wake of the system causing reduced visibilities in blowing snow," the national weather service said. 

Earlier in Friday, parts of northeastern New Brunswick were under a freezing rain warning, however those advisories have since been lifted.
