The latest Nor'easter set to hit Maritimes

Another wallop of a storm is heading our way!!

The Nor'easter, which is slamming New England will head straight for the Maritimes starting later today and bring a blast of heavy snow, strong winds and rain to New Brunswick.

Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning for most of the province.

It's the third nor-easter in five days for the region and as much as 40 centimetres of snow is expected to hit central and northern New Brunswick before it ends tomorrow.

Along with the snow, will come wind gusts up to 90 km/h in some areas, which will make driving hazardous, with periods of blowing and drifting snow that will reduce visibility.

The poor weather conditions will affect travel and residents are being told by Emergency Measures Organization officials to be prepared for any type of emergency, including a power outage, and to have everything they need for at least 72 hours.
