A late autumn storm which brought rain to the Maritimes and the Gaspe and snow to Eastern Ontario and the St. Lawrence Valley also brought strong, gusty winds.

In many parts of New Brunswick, the wind was more of a factor than the precipitation with gusts up to 100 km/h.

Greater Moncton Airport  12 mm rain, winds 89 km/h

Saint John Airport  90 mm rain, winds 91 km/h

Wintry storm a-brewin’


A wintry storm is racing up the Eastern Seaboard with plenty of wind, rain, snow and even a messy mix.

Forecasters say the system will bring mainly wind and rain to Southern New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia but precipitation will likely start as snow tomorrow.

A mixture of rain and heavy snow is likely in the Appalachians, eastern Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Valley.
