Mother Nature and Old Man Winter are sharing some love this Valentine’s day in Atlantic Canada, but, for residents of the area, the upcoming snowstorm is unlikely to be welcomed like a box of chocolates.
Snow, ice, and high winds are moving northward from the eastern seaboard of the United States into Atlantic Canada and the storm is expected to hit just in time for Valentine’s day. The white out conditions and mild temperatures mean the snow is expected to be wet, heavy, and even dangerous to shovel out. Residents are advised to take caution and stay aware.
The storm is expected to begin on Thursday and continue into Friday. New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are both expecting snow throughout the storm, but the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia and most of Newfoundland will be hit with varying amounts of snow and rain. There, conditions will begin with heavy snow, followed by rain, freezing rain, or a rain-snow mix.
While for some, the heavy snow may be an unwelcome addition to Valentine’s day, other people are taking it as a good reason to make the Valentine’s day shopping a little earlier, or to have a romantic dinner at home.
