Wednesday, February 15th, 2017:
Weather Statement in Effect:
A low pressure system is forecast to develop off Cape Cod late this afternoon and track towards Nova Scotia tonight. Snow will begin tonight over southwestern areas and spread northward reaching Cape Breton overnight. The snow will become mixed with ice pellets then change to rain along the coast. As the rain tapers off Thursday afternoon temperatures will drop below freezing and flurries will develop. High winds will accompany this storm giving reduced visibilities in blowing overnight and into Thursday.
Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres are expected, but higher amounts remain a possibility as the track of the low will determine if the snow changes over to rain.
