Snowfall turning to rain made for a heavy, wet mess for the region. The trend of storms stands to continue Thursday, when a low pressure system near Cape Cod is expected to impact mainland Nova Scotia.
Environment Canada announced Monday morning a potential winter storm could affect Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Thursday night and into Friday.
A low pressure system is forecast to develop south of Cape Cod Thursday morning and intensify as it tracks south of Nova Scotia Friday. This system brings the potential for significant snow, wind, and blowing snow.
While it is too early to predict any amounts for this event, Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this storm.
This comes after late-Sunday, early Monday’s snow and rainfall, covering the region with an estimated 10-15 centimtres.
For the remainder of Monday, snow mixed with ice pellets is predicted, changing to rain and ending this morning. For the afternoon, cloudy with 30 per cent chance of rain showers or flurries. High plus 3.
For Tuesday, a mix of sun and cloud with 30 per cent chance of flurries. Wind up to 15 km/h. High minus 12. Cold wind chill minus 25.
