Harsh winter conditions, including rains, strong winds, and heavy snow hit parts of Atlantic Canada on Monday, March 1, 2021, just as the winter season was coming to an end. The severe weather caused disruptions, as well as dangerous travel conditions.

Atlantic Canada faced two potent winter storms, with the first system bringing intense winds and heavy snow in Newfoundland.

Most government offices and municipal services were either delayed or closed due to the blizzard conditions.

Sections of the Trans-Canada Highway were also closed on the west coast as authorities urged drivers to cancel travel until conditions improved. Some motorists were stranded on roads, while several flights and ferry crossings were suspended.

Another storm system is likely for the weekend, March 6 to 7, with a northerly track currently expected.

This system is forecast to bring rain for southern and central Maritimes, while significant snow is possible for Newfoundland.
