Over 50 millimeters of rain could fall over Saint John and surrounding areas from now until Monday evening, as a low pressure system sweeps through the province.
Environment Canada issuing rain and freezing rain warnings for the Port City and meteorologist Stephen Hatt tells CHSJ News stormy conditions will continue until approximately mid-week. He says the storm system will start to pull away on Tuesday, but we will still be seeing some flurries from the system during that day.
The freezing rain is going to continue for the rest of the day, and will change to rain this evening and overnight. That will turn back to freezing rain and ice pellets during the day tomorrow according to Hatt. Police in both Saint John and the Kennebecasis Valley warning road conditions are very bad right now and urging drivers to be careful.
The Fredericton area is under snowfall and winter storm warnings with up to 40 centimetres of snow expected.
