0 0

Scores of weather warnings have been issued for Atlantic Canada as a powerful spring blizzard is poised to bear down on the region today.
    
Heavy snow is in the forecast for all four provinces, but Nova Scotia and P.E.I. are expected to see the biggest accumulation with up to 40 to 50 centimetres of snow forecast for the two provinces.
    
While New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador are expected to get less snow, the entire region has been warned about potentially damaging winds in excess of 100 kilometres per hour that could cause widespread whiteout conditions.
    
In western Newfoundland, where strong winds are common, Environment Canada says gusts could peak at 160 km/h and even higher in the notorious Wreckhouse area.
    
In Nova Scotia, some government services and offices have been closed as a precautionary measure.
    
Environment Canada forecaster Tracey Talbot says residents along Nova Scotia's coastline should stay away from the water and prepare for potentially damaging storm surges.
