Winter Storm Causing Low Visibility

A major winter storm has struck, bringing whipping winds and a hefty dumping of snow to the region. 

Meteorologist with Environment Canada Stephen Hatt tells CHSJ News we'll continue to see heavy snowfall until it starts to gradually taper off early this afternoon. However, wind gusts will stay strong up to 90 kilometres an hour throughout the day causing blowing snow throughout the evening. It's expected we'll see another 25 centimetres of snow fall today.

Visibility is very low throughout the province and will remain that way for the rest of the day according to Hatt. Both Saint John Police and the Rothesay Regional Police describing current road conditions as being very poor.
