New Brunswick getting another blast of winter Monday

Environment Canada says New Brunswick can expect between 10 and 30 cm of snow starting overnight tonight.

A Snowfall Warning is in effect for Bathurst, Fredericton and Woodstock, with forecasters calling for these areas to see light snow developing after midnight and intensifying Monday morning and persisting throughout the day.

Areas covered by the Snowfall Warning can expect between 15 and 30 cm of snow with the highest amounts over the southern half of the province.

Environment Canada says snow may mix with ice pellets over southeastern sections later Monday afternoon.

Grand Falls is under a Special Weather Statement, with forecasters calling for total snowfall amounts of 10 cm by the time the snow tapers of Monday evening.

The weather agency is urging drivers to prepare for rapidly changing driving conditions, including reduced visibility due to blowing snow, and says surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
