AMHERST – Just a couple of days after digging out from a spring blizzard that dumped 40 centimetres of snow on the Amherst area, more winter weather is expected to occur on Sunday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Cumberland County.

A slow moving weather system will bring rain and a mix of winter weather to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Sunday and Monday.

A low pressure system approaching from the U.S. East Coast late on Saturday will slowly pass over Nova Scotia on Sunday and Monday.

The precipitation associated with this system is likely to begin as freezing rain or ice pellets early Sunday morning over northern parts of mainland Nova Scotia as well as Cape Breton before changing to rain later in the morning.

The remainder of the province is likely to see rain possibly heavy at times.

On Monday, periods of rain will likely change to periods of snow as the system pulls away.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
