The sixth winter storm of the 2013-14 season produced high winds, snow and widespread blowing snow for Southeast New Brunswick.

Greater Moncton received 15 cm of snow from the Nor’easter with a peak wind gust of 82 km/h.

Similar amounts of snow fell along the Fundy coast with far lesser amounts inland.

Nova Scotia took more of a beating from this storm as 24 cm of snow fell in Halifax and about 30 cm in Yarmouth and Sydney along with wind gusts between 70 and 100 km/h.

Prince Edward Island was also hard hit with more than 37 cm of snow in Charlottetown but only 12 cm in Summerside.
