Alerts for: Queens County


9:16 PM AST Monday 11 December 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Queens County

A low pressure system near the Great Lakes region will approach the Maritimes on Tuesday. The system is expected to stall over the New England area later Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Precipitation will begin over southwestern Nova Scotia near noon Tuesday as periods of light snow but will quickly change to rain before any significant accumulation. Rain, mild temperatures and strong southeasterly winds gusting up to 80 km/h can be expected across the province Tuesday night, with the strongest winds most likely over the eastern half of the mainland and Cape Breton. A Les Suetes wind warning is in effect for western Cape Breton for Tuesday night.

At this time up to 40 millimetres of rain is expected, but there is still a possibility amounts could exceed 50 millimetres in some areas and rainfall warnings may yet be required. In addition, strong southeasterly winds will accompany this system Tuesday night giving higher than normal water levels and rough surf along the Atlantic coast.

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