Snow plows could be busy if a forecasted storm arrives on the weekend.

Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Yarmouth County.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are expected in these regions. Residents are asked to monitor weather conditions and listen for updated statements.

A low pressure system over the Southern United States is expected to intensify as it tracks northeastward today. This system will move off the East Coast of the United States Sunday morning and then pass just south of Cape Breton Sunday evening. This system is expected to bring significant snowfall and strong easterly winds on Sunday. The snow will become mixed with or change to ice pellets with a risk of freezing rain over most of Nova Scotia Sunday afternoon or evening before briefly changing to rain showers along the Atlantic coast.


Snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 centimetres are expected across the province accompanied by strong easterly winds gusting up to 80 kilometres per hour giving reduced visibilities in blowing snow.


Les Suetes winds gusting to 110 kilometres per hour are expected Sunday afternoon and evening as the low approaches Cape Breton.


Higher than normal water levels can be expected Sunday evening at high tide along the Atlantic coast of Mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and along the Northumberland Strait.


Those planning travel or other weather sensitive activities on Sunday are advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings.
