I couldn't take that kind of HOT!

Some forecasts paint a worse scenario but here is the Environment Canada forecast...

Blizzard warning in effect for:

Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
Blizzard conditions with gusty winds and persistent visibility near zero in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

A low pressure system is expected to develop south of Cape Cod this evening and intensify as it moves towards Nova Scotia tonight. Snow will begin over southwestern New Brunswick this evening and spread eastward throughout the night.

As the storm passes south of Nova Scotia on Monday, it will intensify and give heavy snow, very strong northeasterly winds, and blowing snow resulting in blizzard conditions to much of the southern half of New Brunswick.

Snowfall amounts between 25 and 55 cm is expected with winds gusting up to 100 km/h. The highest snowfall amounts and strongest winds are forecast to be along the Fundy coast.

The snow will taper to flurries Monday evening and the winds will gradually diminish Monday night as the low continues to move east.

Travel is expected to be extremely hazardous due to widespread poor visibility. Travel is not recommended.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

NS will get much worse... gonna be a real mess in Halifax.
