UPDATED: Weather warnings lifted for southwest Nova Scotia

Published on April 1, 2014

There are now weather warnings in effect for southwest Nova Scotia Tuesday morning, but winter weather hasn't ended in the region.

Freezing rain, ice pellets and snow have led to school and program cancellations, as well as slippery roads.

Environment Canada's forecast for the western counties calls for a mix of snow and ice pellets this morning, with the wintery mix of precipitation tapering off for the afternoon.


After a weekend of wet and icy weather, there is more of the same in the Monday forecast for the province.

Environment Canada has issued weather warnings for all of Nova Scotia. All of the western counties -  Halifax, Lunenburg, Queens, Shelburne, Yarmouth, Digby, Annapolis, Kings and Hants – are under freezing rain and rainfall warnings

Another 30 millimetres of rain is in the forecast for the region, thanks to a slow moving low pressure system that will cross Nova Scotia today and tomorrow.

Extended periods of freezing rain  is forecast to hit the area later Monday as temperatures fall this evening and then change to periods of snow.
