ANNAPOLIS VALLEY - It’s not the best day to take a drive through Kings County.

Environment Canada issued a snow squall warning for the area at 11 a.m. Jan. 6.

“Snow squalls are occurring. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate,” the weather statement reads.
“Snow Squalls have developed from northern Annapolis County, through Kings County and into northern Hants County. Snowfall amounts possibly exceeding 20 cm are expected today.”

Visibility will be reduced to “near zero” at times as a result of blowing snow, according to Environment Canada’s website.

“Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.”

Forecasts suggest the weather conditions will gradually improve into the evening.
