Environment Canada release:
Snowfall warning in effect for:
- Halifax Metro and Halifax County West
Significant snowfall is expected.
Total snowfall: 15 to 25 cm
Locations: Queens County, Lunenburg County, Halifax County and Guysborough County,
Time span: beginning late this afternoon and tapering to flurries overnight tonight.
Remarks: The snow will be wet in nature when it starts. However, as temperatures fall tonight, drier snow and blowing snow over exposed areas can be expected.
The main area of snow is expected to end overnight tonight. However, flurries and strong northerly winds Tuesday morning may give areas of blowing snow and poor visibilities during the morning commute.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.
