Special Weather Statement For Wednesday Feb 6

 

Forecast guidance is indicating that a low pressure system near Cape
Hatteras on Friday will deepen rapidly as it sweeps up the atantic 
coast to pass south of Nova Scotia on Saturday then move towards 
Newfoundland on Sunday.
 
This storm will give very strong northeasterlies to the region and 
periods of snow and blowing snow, spreading from west to east 
beginning late Friday with the main snowfall expected Saturday.
It is too early for good estimates of snowfall amounts, but some 
guidance is indicating amounts in excess of 40 centimetres are 
possible for parts of Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.
 
Strong northeasterlies and northerlies over the gulf of st.
Lawrence may also give higher than normal water levels, and will push 
pack ice into north to northeast facing shorelines.
 
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as 
warnings may be required or extended.
 
Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment
Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca
