Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Queens County

Rain and wind expected for Christmas.

An intense weather system will affect the Maritimes on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Periods of rain will develop early in the day Wednesday with a risk of freezing rain over the valley and inland portions of Western Mainland Nova Scotia early Wednesday morning. Rain will become more steady and heavier later on Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day accompanied by strong southerly winds and very mild temperatures. Current indications suggest that rainfall amounts and wind strength could potentially reach warning criteria on Thursday.

Additionally...A higher cycle of tides this week combined with strong onshore winds could give elevated coastal water levels and high waves. This will be closely monitored in the event warnings are required.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this system providing updates as new information becomes available. Those planning travel or other weather-sensitive activities for later in the week are advised to monitor future forecasts for further information.

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