Environment Canada warns of nasty weather for Chaleur region

Make sure your shovels are ready.

Environment Canada says we may be in for some nasty weather with up to 45 centimetres of snow expected for much of the province.

The department says the Chaleur region can expect between 5 and 10 centimetres of snow beginning Thursday afternoon.

An additional 20 to 30 centimetres of snow, along with freezing rain, is expected Thursday night and into Friday.

Winds gusting to 90km/h along the Bay of Chaleur and Acadian coasts could lead to minor flooding around high tide Thursday night and Friday morning.

Environment Canada says the storm could result in transportation delays, road closures and power outages.
