Potential Nor’easter Tuesday (Posted Sat Feb 10 @ 4pm)


Environment Canada meteorologists are monitoring the potential development of a Nor’easter passing south of Nova Scotia Tuesday into Wednesday.

It is too early to make a prediction of snowfall amounts, as the forecast track remains very uncertain. Regardless of the eventual scenario, a period of onshore flurries and snow squalls is likely to develop over northern Cape Breton behind the system later in the week.

We will share additional details as they become clear, and our messaging related to this system may be escalated in the coming days.

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