Multiple storms will be bringing massive rainfalls to Atlantic Canada, but Newfoundland is expected to get the worst of it over the weekend and into next week. Newfoundland's weather warnings indicate that there will be heavy rainfall in several parts of the province.

Tropical Storm Sebastien will be bringing the first round of precipitation to Newfoundland, and there is expected to be a lot. The Weather Network predicts between 40 and 60 millimetres along the Avalon coast.

A public weather alert from Environment Canada also claims that the rainfall could end up mixing with snow as well, making for an even messier situation.

Environment Canada also warns that significant rainfall can cause flash flooding, as well as water pooling on roads. They expect the precipitation to continue through midnight on November 22.

According to The Weather Network, central regions of Newfoundland will also be seeing about 10 to 20 centimetres of snow.

Tropical Storm Sebastien is expected to turn into a category 1 hurricane. However, according to a Weather Network meteorologist, "no impact to land is expected and there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect."

Another storm system is expected to move into the Atlantic region from the Great Lakes, continuing to bring snow and colder temperatures. 

Right behind that system is yet another one that is expected to hit the Atlantic region on November 24 and 25. Unlike the one before it, this storm system will be bringing mostly rain to the region.

However, some snow is expected in northern and central New Brunswick. 

While these storms will be followed by a period of calmer weather next week, stormy conditions will be returning again at the end of the week, according to Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

Winter is already bringing some intense weather across the country. Ontario is expected to get hit with 15 centimetres of snow and rain this week. 

Most of Canada is expected to get some wild and snowy weather this winter, with some areas seeing colder-than-normal temperatures as well.

Toronto even got its first extreme cold weather alert.
