Alert: Atlantic Canada braces for severe weather on Thursday

Severe weather threatens Atlantic Canada Thursday

“Are you ready for another stormy day? Brace yourselves, Atlantic Canada, as the low-pressure system that wreaked havoc in Ontario and Quebec is now making its way to your region, bringing the potential for severe weather on Thursday. Get ready for a rollercoaster of weather events – here’s what to expect throughout the day.

Non-severe Morning Storms

The day will kick off with non-severe storms scattered across different parts of the region. While these morning storms may bring some rain and a bit of thunder, they are not expected to escalate to severe levels. However, residents should still be cautious of wet conditions during their morning commute.

Thursday Afternoon Brings Severe Storm Risk

As the day progresses, the weather will intensify. By Thursday afternoon, severe storms are likely to develop in Quebec and Maine, then move into western New Brunswick before continuing their path east-southeast throughout the evening. The severity of these storms may bring hailstones, strong wind gusts up to 90 km/h, and heavy downpours.

Severe weather risks will not stop there – Prince Edward Island and eastern Nova Scotia will also experience the wrath of these storms later in the day, following the morning’s initial weather disturbances. Residents in these areas should prepare for potential impacts and stay safe.


With the low-pressure system on the move, Atlantic Canada is in for a stormy ride. While the morning may bring relatively mild weather conditions, the afternoon and evening promise more intense storms with the risk of severe impacts. Stay informed, stay safe, and be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store for you on Thursday. Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry!”
