Environment Canada is continuing its special weather statements for parts of the Maritimes in advance of a storm system that is expected to roll into our region on Saturday morning.

Heavy winds and the potential for heavy snow are forecasted, but Meteorologist Richard Zurawski says snowfall amounts are hard to predict at this point because it all depends on whether this Nor’easter moves inland or pushes to the south of us.

“We are going to get something, and I would say certainly count on 20 centimetres, but don’t discount 40 centimetres.  That right across the board is where we’re going.  Probably closer to 20 centimetres for Saint John, and 30 centimetres for Moncton.”

Either way, Zurawski says we are still looking at whiteout conditions for some regions because of high winds, with gusts of between 60 and 90 kilometres an hour.
