More Snowfall Warnings For Parts Of N.B.

By Brad Perry Nov 15, 2022 | 9:18 AM

Parts of New Brunswick will see a mid-week dumping of snow, although much of the southern part of the province should escape it.

Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for central and southwestern regions of the province, including St. Stephen and Northern Charlotte County.

Meteorologist Jim Tirone said the large system, originating from the Ohio Valley, will pull in quite a bit of cold air from Québec and the St. Lawrence River Valley as it tracks toward us.

Tirone said the storm will bring quite a bit of snow on Wednesday, particularly to central and northern New Brunswick.

“When I say quite a bit, I mean 15 centimetres through the Fredericton and 20 to 30 centimetres up toward Mount Carleton and out toward Bathurst,” Tirone said in an interview Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada’s latest forecast calls for near 15 centimetres of snow in St. Stephen and Northern Charlotte County.

Tirone, however, suspects only around five to 10 centimetres of snow will actually accumulate on the ground.

“The first two to three centimetres are probably going to melt this time of year. The ground temperatures are still above zero for the most part,” he said.

“However, 10 centimetres of snow in a quick period of time can still cause some challenges to commuters that aren’t used to snowfall. We haven’t seen snow really that has accumulated since last March.”

The rest of southern New Brunswick will see predominantly rain, including Saint John, Grand Manan and Moncton, but Tirone said he cannot rule out a couple of centimetres of wet snow to start in some areas.

Behind the system Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, Tirone said winds could gust up to 70 or 80 kilometres per hour.
