Environment Canada warning of heavy rain over the weekend

Nova Scotia is under a Special Weather Statement for tomorrow and Saturday.

Environment Canada issued the weather advisory shortly before 5:00 a.m. today.

Forecasters are calling for two weather systems to track across the province starting tomorrow and continuing into Saturday.

The agency says rainfall amounts could top 50 mm in the affected areas, though they caution there is the potential for total rain to be closer to 80 mm.

Environment Canada says rainfall warnings will likely be issued as the weather system gets closer and the complete details are known.
