A winter storm warning has been issued for Shelburne County for Sunday.

Environment Canada says heavy snow will begin Sunday before changing to ice pellets then changing to rain in the afternoon and ending in the evening. There is a risk of freezing rain early in the afternoon. Snow and ice pellet amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected. Rainfall amounts 5 mm.

Blowing snow is forecast in the morning and early in the afternoon. Winds will gust to 80 kilometres an hour in the morning then becoming northeast 30 gusting to 50 late in the afternoon. High plus 5.

It will freeze up again Sunday night with lows of -3 but they are only calling for flurries and a high a +3 on Monday.

So to sum up: a mess.

We want to hear how you’re making out in it. Send us storm photos or photos of how you’re enjoying the day indoors.

The Shelburne Coast Guard will also be running a special sidebar on our webpage Sunday with reports on the storm from around the province via our sister papers. The Cover It Live sidebar allows readers to submit comments, questions and reports.

We also welcome your storm reports and snow photos…
