Snowfall warning in effect for:
- Halifax Metro and Halifax County West
Total snowfall: 15 to 30 cm, highest along the Atlantic coast.
Locations: Nova Scotia.
Time span: this afternoon through Thursday afternoon.
Remarks: Snow will reach western Nova Scotia this afternoon, and spread to the rest of the province later this evening and into the overnight hours. A mixture of rain and snow will occur along the South Shore during the first few hours of the evening. Strong northeasterly winds will likely produce some blowing snow as temperatures fall during the night over portions of mainland Nova Scotia. Blowing snow may also occur Thursday afternoon in Cape Breton as winds shift to the northwest.
The highest accumulations will occur just inland of the Atlantic coast, where some areas of the South Shore and eastern Cape Breton Island are expected to approach 30 cm.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.
