You will want to give yourself some extra time when heading out on Friday morning.

Roads and sidewalks are still slick in many places following Thursday’s wintry weather.

The late winter storm brought rain, freezing rain, ice pellets, and snow across southern New Brunswick.

Around seven centimetres of snow fell at the Greater Moncton International Airport, according to Environment Canada.

However, volunteer observers reported 22 centimetres in the Irishtown area and 25 centimetres in the Grande-Digue area.

The Saint John Airport received around 33 millimetres of rain and trace amounts of snow.

The Sussex area saw as much as 10 centimetres of snow, according to one volunteer observation, while the St. Stephen area picked up a couple of centimetres.

Peak wind gusts throughout the province also reached more than 60 kilometres per hour.

Poor road conditions led to a travel-not-recommended advisory along Route 2 between Moncton and Memramcook. It was lifted shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday.

There were also some flight delays and cancellations at the Greater Moncton International Airport and the Saint John Airport.

Scattered power outages were reported across the province on Thursday, but they have all since been repaired.
