Tricky travel conditions are being reported as a late winter storm makes it way through the region.

Slick road conditions are being reported throughout southern New Brunswick as the rain changes over to freezing precipitation.

A travel-not-recommended advisory was issued on Route 2 between Moncton and Memramcook shortly after 1 p.m. Icy patches, slushy patches, and drifting snow are being reported.

The latest highway conditions can be found through New Brunswick 511.

If you have a flight scheduled on Thursday, you may want to check ahead before heading to the airport.

Delays and cancellations are being reported at the Saint John Airport and the Greater Moncton International Airport.

Weather forecast

Rain has now switched to ice pellets, freezing rain, and snow across southern and central regions of the province.

Because of that, the rainfall warning that was in place for Saint John, Kings, and Charlotte counties has ended.

A snowfall warning has been issued for Greater Moncton and southeastern New Brunswick, which could see up to 15 centimetres of snow Thursday evening.

Areas to the north of the city throughout Kent County are expected to see another five to 10 centimetres of snow.

Power outages

The storm has led to some power outages throughout the province, though there have been no widespread issues so far.

NB Power reported more than 2,100 homes and businesses without electricity as of 4:20 p.m. Thursday.

There are a handful of outages in the Central York/Sunbury region affecting more than 1,100 customers.

A single outage in the Kent region has left more than 970 customers without electricity.

There are also scattered outages being reported elsewhere in southern New Brunswick.

The latest details, including estimated restoration times, are available on the utility’s website.
