Warnings

8:57 AM AST Saturday 31 January 2015
Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Antigonish County

A low pressure system southwest of Nova Scotia will intensify as it tracks northeastward today to lie over the Gulf of St. Lawrence tonight. Freezing rain associated with this system will persist over parts of the province this morning and then change to rain or scattered showers as temperatures reach and surpass the freezing mark later this morning or this 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 weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #NSStorm.
