A winter wallop is forecasted for the weekend.
Environment Canada has issued a weather statement for Nova Scotia showing that a major winter storm could bring as much as 40 centimetres of snow to parts of the province.
“The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended,” the statement issued at 12:08 p.m. Wednesday reads.
The storm is expected to pass south of Nova Scotia on Saturday and move towards Newfoundland on Sunday.
The snow is forecast to begin starting in the western part of the province late Friday, with the main snowfall coming down through the day Saturday.
Strong winds are supposed to accompany the storm and could lead to blowing snow.
