Let’s hear it for Shubenacadie Sam!

Shubenacadie Sam says it'll be an early spring.

 St. Stephen – Yes, it’s snowing (again), but take heart.

Shubenacadie Sam says we’re going to have an early spring.

Today is Groundhog Day, and there’s more weather on the way, adding to the crazy mix up of snow, rain and freezing rain which has impacted the region in the last few days.

According to Environment Canada’s warning preparedness meteorologist Claude Cote expect a mixture of snow and rain today in Charlotte County until midnight.

Between five to 10 cms of snow is forecasted to accumulate between Thursday night and Friday in this region, with rainfall amounts of between 10-15 mm for the same time period.

In other words, we’re in for a messy mix of weather during the next few hours.

A trough of low pressure over Quebec is moving across New Brunswick early today. Tonight, in the wake the system, brisk northerly winds of cold arctic air will invade the province.

And despite Sam’s prediction, Old Man Winter isn’t letting go anytime soon.

Cote said meteorologists are currently monitoring a potential storm that could impact New Brunswick Sunday night into Monday bringing rain to southern portions of the province and snow to northern regions.
