    N.B. storm system could resemble storm of the decade

    31/12/2009 12:39:46 PM


    New Brunswick is bracing for the first big winter storm of the decade, and this weekend's blast could be reminiscent of the biggest storm of the past decade, according to a meteorologist.


    The nor'easter will be a complex combination of two systems, bringing rain, snow and wind to the region, said William Bourque, with Radio-Canada Acadie in Moncton.

    It looks eerily similar to a 1992 storm system, which dumped 160 centimetres of snow in the Moncton area, said Bourque, who has spent most of this week studying weather charts on the system, making its way toward the Maritimes.

    The storm will likely hit around midday on Saturday, but will be at its worst that night and into Sunday, when the winds are expected to pick up, said Bourque.

    "In the northeast and the northwest, the snow amounts will be less, though significant. I think it's going to be in the southeastern portion of New Brunswick that will get the most."

    It's too early to predict exact amounts, but at least 35 centimetres of snow could fall in the southeast, said Bourque.

    But with this kind of system, anything could happen, he said.

    "Keep a close eye and listen for updates on the forecast."

    New Brunswick will bear the brunt of the storm, said Bourque. Rain is forecast for Nova Scotia and P.E.I. on Sunday.

    I hope this guy is right. I'm really looking forward to plowing in a REAL snow storm for once this season lol. The storms we've had so far here in Saint John haven't been that challenging yet. More than the plowing I'm looking forward to collecting the money after this storm LOL.

    I think the OH will be open tonight, they don't close to much. We plow a lot just up the street from here, i always take a break from plowing around 2am, just to watch the ladies leaving. Some of them are always looking for a ride,which i don't mind doing. HAHA

    Mines sitting out now. I'm running for a buddy of mine. I did the mall last winter for MacArthurs and this year I'm running a 310 Deere Backhoe for a new company in Moncton called Clear Water Development.

    yeah everything is gone. I have a straight blade to put on if I want it, but its been easier to just plow for the friends company while in school. He treats me good and I don't have to worry about my truck. my names Geoff Crossman. and your right, ny truck is usually out back

    right on Geoff, that was some heavy pushing the other night...good thing i had the loaders out or I wasnt finishing. I plow a larger car lot and all the snow is angled in the middle the pushed to the end. But the time I got to pushing it to the end it seemed to be one big wall of rock hard snow...i felt bad for my truck but the ol' cummins pushed and pushed. A good storm is moving in as well, 20-30cm...lovely
