Environment Canada has continued its blizzard warning for the region and says a weather system south of the province will bring snow, near-zero visibilities in blowing snow and cold wind chill values which together will give potentially dangerous winter conditions to the entire province.

Additional snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 centimetres are expected across the province with the heaviest snowfall amounts over southwestern Nova Scotia, the Annapolis Valley and most of the Atlantic coast.

The snow combined with strong northeast winds and very cold temperatures will give ideal conditions for extensive blowing and drifting snow with frequent whiteout conditions across the entire province.

The very cold airmass over the region will continue to give cold wind chill values below minus 25 across the entire province today and tonight.

Higher than normal water levels are expected along the Atlantic and Fundy coastlines of Nova Scotia during high tide today. Heavy pounding surf is expected along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia this afternoon and evening.
