Environment Canada warns of two systems bearing down on N.S.

AMHERST - It's becoming a dream winter for snow enthusiasts.

Just a couple of days after a dumping of freezing rain and snow, winter will return to Cumberland County tonight.

Environment Canada is predicting up 10 centimetres of snow overnight Thursday and into Friday morning.

A low pressure system is forecast to develop near Cape Cod this evening and intensify as it tracks across Nova Scotia overnight tonight to lie east of Cape Breton Friday morning.

This system is expected to bring snow, rain and gusty winds to most of Nova Scotia tonight before ending Friday morning as it moves away.

A second winter storm is expected to develop over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard late Sunday and track northeastward passing near Nova Scotia on Monday. This system could bring significant snow, rain and strong winds.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of these two weather systems providing updates as new information becomes available.
