A low pressure system south of the Great Lakes is tracking eastward and will impact New Brunswick overnight.

Some areas of the province such as Saint John and Fredericton are expecting freezing rain and Environment Canada has posted warnings.

Greater Moncton will receive mostly snow with less than 6 cm expected which falls below warning criteria.

This system is connected to an extensive weather front which has brought torrential rain to the American South – up to 300 mm in the Lower Mississippi River Valley – causing flooding, several deaths and thousands being evacuated from their homes.
