Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Pictou County

A low pressure system south of Nova Scotia will intensify as it tracks northeastward today to lie over the Gulf of St. Lawrence by overnight tonight. This disturbance will spread a mixture of snow and ice pellets across the region this morning. Snow and ice pellets will change to freezing rain and then rain or scattered showers as temperatures reach and surpass the freezing mark late this morning or afternoon.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Stay up to date with Weatheradio or your local media. Email reports of severe weather to or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #NSStorm.
