Alerts for: Shelburne County

Watches

10:09 PM AST Saturday 06 February 2016
Winter storm watch in effect for:

  • Shelburne County

Another storm likely on Monday.

A low pressure system will intensify as it tracks up the U.S. eastern seaboard Sunday then passes south of Nova Scotia Monday night. Snow associated with this system will likely begin Monday morning over western portions of the province then spread eastward through the day. Snowfall amounts will be heavily dependent on the proximity of the track of the low to Nova Scotia. At this time snowfall accumulations in excess of 15 centimetres are possible. Strong winds combined with fresh snowfall will likely give blowing snow and reduced visibilities. Additionally this system will contribute to higher than normal water levels especially along the Atlantic coast as we enter a period of high astronomical tides.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays.

Winter storm watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NSStorm.
