A nor’easter projected to hit the Maritimes on Wednesday will bring with it between 10 and 15 centimetres of snow, according to Environment Canada.

The federal weather agency says that snow will begin falling over Nova Scotia on Wednesday night ahead of a low-pressure system travelling across the eastern part of the province and the southeastern portion of New Brunswick on Thursday.

New Brunswick is set to receive the brunt of the system on Thursday morning with the snow continuing to fall into Friday.

According to Environment Canada, the southern and eastern parts of New Brunswick are expected to receive 10 to 15 centimetres of snow.

There is a chance that it may exceed 15 centimetres as Environment Canada says that there is still some uncertainty over the timing, amounts and details of the storm as the system is still developing.

The storm will bring with it strong northeasterly winds which will severely reduce visibility due to blowing snow.
