Early-season snowfall to blanket northern and eastern Nova Scotia
Northern and eastern Nova Scotia are set to experience their first significant snowfall of the season later today, with forecasts predicting up to 5 cm of snowfall in most areas and up to 10 cm in the Cape Breton Highlands. The snow is expected to be concentrated in regions of higher elevation, particularly the Cobequid Pass, Mt. Thom, and the eastern highlands.
As the day unfolds, the snowfall may mix with ice pellets before transitioning to rain, with the wintry mix concluding by nightfall. Motorists should note that a second snowfall is predicted for Wednesday, potentially affecting the entirety of the province and possibly creating hazardous travel conditions.
Travelers are urged to exercise caution as surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become treacherous. Winter driving skills will be essential. Environment Canada will issue continuous updates, and the public can report severe weather by emailing NSstorm@ec.gc.ca or using the hashtag #NSStorm on Twitter.
