Environment Canada has issued special weather statements for Nova Scotia and PEI...

Special weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 4:21 PM ADT Sunday 17 March 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Special weather statement for:
=new= Mainland Nova Scotia
=new= Cape Breton
=new= Prince Edward Island.

Another taste of winter is expected Tuesday and Wednesday.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
A low pressure system will develop north of Cape Hatteras Tuesday morning in a trough stretching from the Great Lakes. The low will slowly move up the Eastern Seaboard and track through New Brunswick on Wednesday.

Precipitation associated with this low will reach Southwestern Nova Scotia Tuesday afternoon as snow. It will slowly spread northward to reach central regions in the evening and Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island by Wednesday morning. A large area of ice pellets is possible with this set up and could persist for several hours. Precipitation will end during the first part of the day Wednesday over Mainland Nova Scotia and later in the day over Cape Breton.

Although it is still very early to discuss amounts, it is possible that some regions may require snowfall warnings at a later time.

Precipitation associated with this low will reach Southwestern New Brunswick Tuesday evening as snow and spread north overnight. Snow will linger on Wednesday as the low tracks over the province.

Yes, it looks like another mess for many of us. Some of us were hoping for another heatwave like we had in March last year, that's not likely to happen though.

Yes winter can end anytime now. Snowfall warnings for SW NB and Winter Storm watch for SW NS. The warmth of last March seems like..... a year ago!

We woke up to a nice bit of snow in Port Hawkesbury this morning. Wind blew it off of everything, minus my car. :)

The wind is funny about that, must be the magnetic appeal of a car that makes snow stick to it :D

Snowfall warnings are up, and have been up, most of the day now for most of the Maritime Provinces for tonight and tomorrow for any where from 10-25 cms. New Brunswick as usual could see the most snow with many area's forecast to see perhaps up to 25cm from this latest system. Probably a mix of snow and rain by late morning for many regions, and possibly some freezing rain mixed in as well. Just another messy March storm to bring in Spring time.

What a difference a year makes! A year ago, temperatures were in the mid-20's. Today - the biggest snowstorm since Feb '09.... 41 cm and still snowing.

Yes quite a contrast from last year. We ended up with about 15cm here from last nights weather and what fell earlier today.
