HALIFAX - Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for all of Nova Scotia with snow and ice pellets in the forecast Monday evening before much of the province sees a changeover to rain.
The snow and ice pellets are expected to begin over the southwestern parts of the province Monday afternoon and should reach Cape Breton by midnight.
Most parts of the province will get less than five centimetres of snow before it changes to freezing rain and ice pellets, and then rain.
Higher amounts of snow are forecasted for Cape Breton, with up to 15 centimetres possible for Victoria County.
For Halifax, the snow should start in the early evening, with about two centimetres on the ground before the changeover.
The rain is expected to end Tuesday morning.
