Warnings

4:23 PM AST Sunday 01 February 2015
Rainfall warning in effect for:

  • Guysborough County

Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.

A low pressure system will approach the Maritimes on Monday and cross eastern Nova Scotia on Tuesday. Latest computer guidance suggests that snow at times heavy will develop over southwestern Nova Scotia late Monday morning and spread northeastward during the day. Strong winds will accompany the snow giving reduced visibilities in blowing snow. Snow will change to rain across all counties along the Atlantic Coast, including Cape Breton, through the night monday. Rainfall amounts will range between 25 to 40 millimetres. A period of ice pellets and freezing rain is forecast during the transition from snow to rain. Snowfall amounts along the Atlantic coast are expected to be in the range of 10 to 15 centimetres. Snow at times heavy will persist across the remainder of the province where 20 to 40 centimetres are likely. Another brief shot of snow is expected Tuesday morning in the wake of the system. Conditions will gradually improve through the day on Tuesday as the low moves away.

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Don't approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.

Rainfall Warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
