Updated: Environment Canada issues Rainfall Warning

Update:

Warnings

3:45 PM ADT Sunday 09 October 2016
Rainfall warning in effect for:

  • Halifax Metro and Halifax County West

Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

A trough of low pressure passing over the Maritimes will intensify tonight as it draws upon tropical moisture from the south.

Significant rainfall is expected over most of Nova Scotia beginning this evening with rainfall amounts totalling up to 55 millimeters before ending by late Monday afternoon or early evening.

At this time there remains some uncertainty in the exact positioning and intensity of this system, but most indications are that the heaviest precipitation will be along the Atlantic coast.

Environment Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor the development of this system and will update forecasts and possibly extend rainfall warnings as further information becomes available.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

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.
