Alerts for: Richmond County
3:40 PM AST Tuesday 25 November 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Richmond County
Snow, rain, and ice pellets expected Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
An intense low pressure system will develop near Cape Hatteras Wednesday morning and move northeastward passing south of Nova Scotia Wednesday night and Thursday. Precipitation will begin as rain over Southern Nova Scotia late Wednesday morning and spread north during the afternoon.
Over northern regions west of Pictou County, the rain is forecast to change to snow. A snowfall warning has been issued for those areas. For the remainder of the province we can expect the rain to change to snow then ice pellets and then back to rain by Thursday morning. There is a possibility of freezing rain as well. Along the Atlantic coast we can expect a majority of the precipitation to fall as rain.
Given this storm has yet to develop off Cape Hatteras there remains a large degree of uncertainty with the precipitation amounts. As this is the first winter storm of the season, motorists and those travelling should use caution and monitor road conditions before departing.
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.
