MONCTON, N.B.- Two words for you this morning, stay home
It is a complete mess in and around Greater Moncton this morning .
A winter storm warning has now ended, but Environment Canada has issued blowing snow and wind warnings for Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick.
Codiac Transpo is not running this morning and will be reassessing the weather situation at 10am.
Schools in Anglophone East and in Francophone South have cancelled for the day.
Please check our cancellation page on our website for a further list of closures.
Winds of up to 90 kilometres an hour are expected.
Our meteorologist Richard Zurawski says there is near zero visibility in some areas. “The blowing and drifting snow are reducing visibilities all over the place so the roads and highways are very,very difficult”, says Zurawski. “It’s hard to clear the roads when the wind is actually gusting between 60 and 80 kilometres an hour”.
The plows are out, but most roads are still snow packed and there is ice underneath so it is very slick.
Most flights out of the Greater Moncton International Airport are cancelled this morning.
Call or check their website if you are planning on flying out today.
Greater Moncton received almost 27 centimetres of snow yesterday.
There are also a number of power outages in the province, many of which are in the Fredericton area. Check the Nb Power site www.nbpower.ca for updates.
