The messy weather forced the cancellation of flights, as well as schools and businesses across the Maritimes on Tuesday. Road conditions were so poor that transportation officials in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick shut down a 170-kilometre stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway between Moncton, N.B., and Truro, N.S.

Here's a timeline of what to expect tonight and tomorrow:
