More snow coming to Nova Scotia tomorrow

Environment Canada says we can expect an additional 20 to 30 cm of snow in parts of Colchester and Cumberland County on Monday.

Forecasters say snow ahead of a low pressure system is expected to begin early tomorrow and intensify through the morning before changing over to ice pellets and possibly freezing rain or rain in the afternoon.

The weather agency expects the precipitation to quickly taper off Monday evening.

According to a Snowfall Warning issued Sunday morning, snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm are possible for areas of Northern Nova Scotia, with the valley seeing near 20 cm and lesser amounts expected elsewhere.

Forecasters say strong easterly winds will develop late in the day on Monday and may reduce visibility at times with blowing snow.

Environment Canada suggests postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve as visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
