Snowfall warning for
Cumberland County North and Cobequid Pass continued

Snow at times heavy beginning late Tuesday morning or early Tuesday afternoon giving 15 to 25 centimetres.



A low pressure system will develop off of Cape Hatteras tonight then intensify as moves northeastward Tuesday before tracking south of Nova Scotia Tuesday night. Snow at times heavy is forecast to start in the morning or early afternoon. Rain is likely over some Atlantic coastal localities especially in the morning. Blowing snow over exposed areas is likely late Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening.

Snowfall amounts over the above regions are forecast to be in the 15 to 25 centimetre range. Along parts of the Atlantic coast lesser amounts may occur as some of the precipitation will likely fall as rain. There are some indications that snowfall amounts could be even higher over some areas especially inland.

Geographic location: Atlantic, Cumberland County North, Nova Scotia

    Now the problem begins whether to cancel school and put up with complaints when the storm doesn't hit.... or not cancel school and put up with complaints from parents that have to pick up children in dangerous driving conditions... and those of us that have to walk to get the kids in those dangerous conditions.

    Hopefully the weather will hold off until after school... and after people get home from work.
