Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Colchester County - Cobequid Bay

Another winter storm on Tuesday.

A major weather system will impact Nova Scotia on Tuesday. Snow is forecast to begin in Southwest Nova Scotia overnight Monday and spread to the rest of the province through the morning Tuesday. The snow will be heavy at times and be accompanied by very strong winds which will cause reduced visibilities. There is still some uncertainty with respect to the snowfall amounts, but generally 15 to 25 centimetres can be expected across Mainland Nova Scotia with 15 centimetres across Cape Breton Island. At this time models are indicating a changeover to rain across the province Tuesday evening or overnight Tuesday however a slight change in the timing of the warm air will impact when or if the changeover will occur. On Wednesday as the system tracks very slowly through the region we can expect to see snow to the north of the system and rain to its south.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
