An intensifying low pressure system approaching this evening from Cape Cod will track across northern sections of Nova Scotia tonight. Periods of heavy rain are expected over the entire province tonight ahead of the system giving rainfall totals of 30 to 60 millimetres near the New Brunswick border the precipitation will fall mainly in the form of snow with some occasional freezing rain.

Strong northerly winds will spread across the province overnight and early Saturday morning behind this system ushering in freezing temperatures. Some areas will see gusts to 90 km/h. Rapidly falling temperatures and periods of snow will accompany these strong northerly winds leading to icy road conditions late overnight and early Saturday particularly over the western half of the province.”
