**Updated** Nova Scotians cleaning up after powerful winter storm

Nova Scotians are digging out after a powerful winter storm brought more than a foot of snow to many communities.

Volunteers weather observers with the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network reported as much as 39 centimetres in the Yarmouth area by early Sunday morning.

About 34 centimetres of snow fell in the Nappan area, the Upper Rawdon area saw about 31 centimetres and Scots Bay recorded about 29 centimetres.

A volunteer observer reported just over 25 centimetres of snow in Enfield, the Trafalgar area saw about 23 centimetres and the Truro area picked up just under 22 centimetres.

Reports from the Halifax area varied between 16 and 24 centimetres of snow.

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal says roads are snow covered throughout the province, with blowing and drifting snow giving poor visibility in many areas.

You can find the latest road conditions online, or by calling 511.

New Glasgow Regional Police are asking drivers – and pedestrians – to only venture out if absolutely necessary.

Residents are also advised that the winter parking ban will be enforced into Sunday morning to allow Public Works crews to properly clear streets and sidewalks throughout the town.

The weather and road conditions have led to many cancellations in the area – you can find the complete list at the bottom of this story.

Meanwhile, Nova Scotia Power's website is reporting about 6,000 customers without power as of noon Sunday.
