Heavy snow expected for Colchester and Cumberland County

Environment Canada has issued a Snowfall Warning for parts of Colchester and Cumberland County on the Fundy Coast.

Forecasters are calling for the snow to start this morning and taper off to periods of rain or showers later this afternoon, but not before 15 to 20 cm of snow hits the ground.

The weather agency also expects strong northwesterly winds tonight that will quickly drop the temperatures well below freezing.

Drivers are reminded to adjust their driving as conditions change and that heavy snow brings reduced visibility.

The areas covered by the Snowfall Warning are:
- Colchester County - Cobequid Bay
- Colchester County North
- Cumberland County Minas Shore
- Cumberland County North and Cobequid Pass
