Snow Is Coming For 4 Canadian Provinces This Week & Some Places Could Get Up To 25 cm

Nothing like spring in Canada.

Canadians are dealing with a lot right now. They'd probably prefer not to think about spring snow, but unfortunately, Canada's weather forecast is calling for it in four provinces. It could even reach up to 25 centimetres in some places.

The Atlantic coast is going to be hit with storms bringing snow, rain, and heavy wind starting on Thursday and moving into Friday.

New Brunswick is predicted to be getting the worst of it, with Environment Canada calling for anywhere between 15 to 25 centimetres of the white stuff. 

The province could also see higher water levels on the coast, which could cause shore erosion and damage to any waterfront infrastructure.

Further east, in Newfoundland, which has already seen its fair share of snow this year, they're expected to get slightly less, but precipitation will continue over the day, along with strong winds. 

These conditions could make it hard to see on roads into the evening. The falling flakes could also eventually transition into significant rainfall.

Meanwhile, Nova Scotia could see a mix of all of these, with Environment Canada predicting snow, rain, and heavy wind gusts reaching anywhere from 70 to 90 km/h.

The province is expected to see the worst of the weather from Thursday night into Friday morning, as the storm system continues its journey east.

Canada's smallest province, Prince Edward Island, could be seeing up to 15 centimetres of snowfall in Prince County specifically.

It will also be experiencing heavy winds, particularly along the coastline.

The weather is going to be rough elsewhere this week. Ontario is predicted to be hit by thunder, snow, and possibly even a tornado somewhere near the Canada-U.S. border.

As any Canadian knows, spring never promises exclusively nice weather. It's basically the time when you should have both your shorts and winter coats ready to go at a moment's notice.
