A prolonged period of snowfall is expected.
Locations: Central Nova Scotia.
Additional snowfall: 15 to 25 cm.
Time span: continuing until Monday.
Remarks: A low pressure system has stalled south of Nova Scotia resulting in a prolonged period of snow. There will be a brief break in heavy snow overnight tonight, before intensifying again on Sunday afternoon. The highest accumulations are expected during the day today. Snow will be wet and heavy, which could cause strain on utility lines.
Additionally, increasing northeasterly winds could result in reduced visibilities in blowing snow this weekend.
Snow will taper to flurries on Monday.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Heavy snowfall accumulation may cause tree branches to break.
Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.
