Special weather statement for
Cumberland County - Minas Shore continued
Unseasonably cold airmass tonight over Nova Scotia.
Potential snowstorm for Sunday for all of Nova Scotia.
An Arctic airmass has brought unseasonably cold temperatures to Nova Scotia. Temperatures as low as minus 20 combined with moderate westerly winds will result in cold wind chill values of minus 25 to minus 33 for tonight.
A low pressure system is forecast to develop over the Southern United States on Saturday and is expected to intensify as it moves northeastward. This system will likely spawn a second low along the mid Atlantic coast of the United States Saturday night which will then track towards the Maritimes passing just east of Nova Scotia later on Sunday. There is a potential for significant snow, ice pellets, strong winds and blowing snow on Sunday for much of Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. A change over to rain is possible along the Atlantic coast Sunday afternoon. A return to colder temperatures will occur Sunday night and Monday.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this storm providing updates as new information becomes available. Those planning travel or other weather-sensitive activities for Sunday are advised to monitor future forecasts for more information and any warnings that may be required.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
