Environment Canada has issued the following special weather alert for Kings County:
A potential winter storm could affect Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton tonight and early Friday morning. A second storm is possible for Sunday night and Monday.
A low pressure system is forecast to develop near Cape Cod this evening and intensify as it tracks across Nova Scotia overnight tonight to lie east of Cape Breton Friday morning. This system is expected to bring snow, rain and gusty winds to most of Nova Scotia tonight before ending Friday morning as it moves away.
There is still uncertainty with respect to the track and intensity of the system. It is possible that some regions may require a snowfall warning as more than 15 centimetres of snow could fall during the overnight period tonight.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be required.
A second winter storm is expected to develop over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard late Sunday and track northeastward passing near Nova Scotia on Monday. This system could bring significant snow, rain and strong winds.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of these two weather systems providing updates as new information becomes available.
