Potential for 4-12 hours of freezing rain Monday into Tuesday

Release at 11am Feb 14 2021:

Potential for extended period of freezing precipitation Monday night or Tuesday.

Monday night through Tuesday morning for southwestern half of the province, early Tuesday morning through late Tuesday afternoon elsewhere.

An elongated, slow moving system is expected to cross the region Monday night and Tuesday. Precipitation will start as snow over most areas Monday evening then change to a prolonged period of ice pellets and/or freezing rain Monday night into Tuesday before gradually changing to rain from southwest to northeast across the province on Tuesday. Latest indications show a potential for between 4 to 12 hours of freezing precipitation possible for some parts of the province, with the greatest risk over areas furthest inland as well as the northern half of the province on Tuesday. Note that as this system is still in early stages of development, this situation may change and it will continue to be closely monitored as it approaches in the event warnings may be required.

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