Special weather statement: Heavy rain and winds beginning Sunday (Posted Dec 15 @ 3:15pm)

Environment Canada release:

Another round of heavy rain and strong winds is expected to start next week in Nova Scotia. Southeasterly wind gusts could reach nearly 100 km/h, with rainfall amounts ranging from 50-70mm expected by Tuesday. The weather event is set to begin Sunday overnight, intensifying on Monday. A large low-pressure system developing near the U.S. eastern seaboard is predicted to approach the Maritimes late Sunday, creating potential impacts for areas recently affected by significant precipitation and damaging winds. The rain is likely to persist in various parts of Nova Scotia into Wednesday.

Additionally, large waves and pounding surf are expected to result in higher than normal water levels along the coast, especially near high tide on Monday and Monday night. Residents should continue to monitor updated alerts and forecasts over the weekend as the storm develops.
