PICTOU COUNTY: Sun for some, snow for others; it’s all about location

A low-pressure system just south of Newfoundland’s Burin Peninsula continues to whiten things up across central portions of the Island; snowfall totals could reach 15 cm by the end of the afternoon. A weak trough trailing the outgoing low is producing a light shower/flurry mix over the Maritimes. The next weather system will approach from the southwest but stay off the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia. It should, however, come close enough to bring 3 to 5 cm of snow to coastal areas. Those totals cloud reach 10 cm for parts of Newfoundland’s interior on Saturday. Elsewhere, a cold high will serve up a mix of sun and cloud and cooler temperatures for the weekend. Finally, if you’re not a fan of the cold weather, you’ll be happy to hear that a system developing over the American Midwest will bring a warm wind and rain instead of snow early next week.
