This was the scene in Shelburne from a blizzard earlier in January. 

After a good old January thaw, winter appears to be coming back with a vengence.  Temperatures are heading down and Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch for the province.

High snowfall amounts, and strong winds are expected to give blowing snow to parts of the province for Wednesday.

A strong low pressure system is expected to develop over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard Tuesday and track northeastward passing near the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia on Wednesday. This disturbance has the potential to bring significant snow, strong winds and blowing snow to the Maritimes. A slight shift in the track of the system could also increase the possibility of mixed precipitation over parts of the province.

While it is too early to predict with certainty any precipitation amounts for this event, Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this storm providing updates as new information becomes available.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
