Slushy weather on the way

A storm expected to hit the Maritimes on Wednesday night will bring mostly rain to Nova Scotia, including Yarmouth County.


A special weather statement remains in effect as rain amounts exceeding 25 millimetres are expected.

An intensifying low pressure system is forecast to pass south of the Great Lakes on Wednesday and make its way across the Bay of Fundy on Thursday. Environment Canada says indications suggest most of Nova Scotia should see rain with amounts possibly exceeding 25 millimetres by Thursday afternoon. There is still uncertainty in the track of the low and some areas of Nova Scotia may see the precipitation falling as snow and or freezing rain. Forecasters will continue to monitor the development of this low pressure system.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended. Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at
