Environment Canada issued a rare weather warning for Greater Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick with a prolonged period of ice pellets in the forecast.

The weather office says moderate to heavy ice pellets mixed with freezing rain will persist today before changing to snow tonight.

Ice pellet amounts near 10 cm are expected and will be followed by snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm.

Elsewhere in New Brunswick, 45 mm of rain could fall in Saint John and along the Fundy coast, Fredericton can expect 20 cm of snow while Miramichi could get 25-50 cm before the storm moves away on Wednesday.
