Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Nova Scotia over the potential for a flash freeze Monday night (Jan. 27)
Mild temperatures and periods of rain are forecast this afternoon as a warm front pushes north of Nova Scotia. Temperatures in some areas will reach 5 to 8 degrees. Tonight a strong cold front will sweep across the region and temperatures will plummet in its wake. The combination of rain snow melt and rapidly falling temperatures could lead to some slippery roads and sidewalks.
