Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for the entire province.

WATCH: Jeremy Keefe gives us the weather forecast for the Maritimes for Feb. 13. 

Total snowfall amounts across the province are expected to range between 20 to 40 cm.

That snowfall, coupled with strong winds, is expected to greatly reduce visibility on the roads.

As of Wednesday morning, delays and cancellations were being reported.

Saint John Transit has suspended service as of Wednesday morning, and will be updating the situation later on in the day.

As well, Saint john has issued a temporary overnight parking ban for the south and central peninsula. The ban is effective from 11 p.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday. There will be no on-street parking allowed in the area. Vehicles that are parked on the street may be ticketed or towed.
