Blizzard warning lifted, but more wind and snow expected Wednesday

January 29th, 2015 by admin

Many New Brunswickers woke up to very snowy conditions and tough commutes following yesterday's blizzard, which battered much of the Eastern United States and the province on Tuesday. CBC meteorologist Peter Coade reports that the snow will let up in New Brunswick on Wednesday evening, but it will still be windy and there's the possibility that another 2 to 5 centimetres of snow will fall locally. Afternoon temperatures in the province will range from –6 C to –10 C, with wind chills making it feel like –17.

By Wednesday afternoon in Fredericton, the snow will start to taper off to flurries and the winds will decrease in strength. It will take until the evening for the snow to taper off in the southeast. After the storm moves out, Coade predicts that there will be a ridge of high pressure which will move across the Maritimes on Thursday, bringing with it sunshine. However, Coade is forecasting more snow for Saturday.

Blizzard warning lifted but many schools remain closed

While the blizzard warning has been lifted for New Brunswick, many schools in the region are closed for Wednesday. As CBC News reports, the closures impact all francophone school districts, as well as Anglophone East, Anglophone South and Anglophone North districts. Meanwhile, Anglophone West schools north of Bath are open.
