Snow, rain, wind expected on Thursday/Friday
Environment Canada says the shovels may have to come out again later this week as a storm is forecast to hit on Thursday and Friday.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement about a potential Major winter storm could affect Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Thursday and Friday.
A low pressure system is forecast to develop near Cape Hatteras on Thursday and move towards Atlantic Canada. This system could bring significant snow, rain and strong winds to Nova Scotia on Thursday and Friday.
The national weather forecaster says there is a considerable degree of uncertainty regarding how the system will evolve. As a result it is too early to provide an estimate of anticipated precipitation amounts.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this system providing updates as new information becomes available. Those planning to travel or other weather sensitive activities for later in the week are advised to monitor future forecasts for more information.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
