Environment Canada says a passing storm will bring a messy mix of weather to Nova Scotia overnight, with snow inland and with more expected rain along the coast.
Environment Canada has issued another special weather statement that a storm will bring another messy mix of rain, freezing rain and snow tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 19) and Thursday.
A low pressure system is forecast to approach from Cape Cod this evening and track close to the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia overnight tonight and Thursday morning. A wintery mix of precipitation in the form of snow rain and freezing rain is expected to begin over southwestern Nova Scotia later this evening and spread to Cape Breton overnight tonight.
Current indications suggest that parts of Nova Scotia may receive more than 10 centimetres of snow and an extended period of freezing rain.
In Shelburne County, the forecast is calling for mostly rain along the coastline with snow inland.
There is still a lot of uncertainty in the storm track and the public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be required.
