Colorado Low barreling toward Maritimes


A wind warning has been issued for Greater Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick by Environment Canada as a Colorado Low heads for the Maritimes.

A Colorado Low is a low pressure system that develops near Colorado on the eastern side of the American Rockies and carries everything from heavy snow and torrential rains to super cell outbreaks and gale force winds.

The Colorado Low is the third most frequent system that influences weather across North America, trailing only the Alberta Clippers and North Pacific Lows.

Tomorrow, the southwesterlies funnelling up the Bay of Fundy will likely reach gusts of 90 km/h and will target the Tantramar Marsh area between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.  

Rainfall amounts could total 30 mm by Saturday.
