Blizzard warning in effect for Nova Scotia on Monday
Environment Canada is warning about dangerous travel conditions and reduced visibility
Environment Canada has issued a blizzard warning for most of Nova Scotia for Monday night.
High winds and between 20 and 35 centimetres of snow are expected for most mainland parts of the province and Cape Breton.
A low pressure system will track up the U.S. eastern seaboard overnight Sunday and will spread eastward across Nova Scotia through the day on Monday and intensify that night.
Snow could begin as early as noon on Monday. Northeast winds gusting 50 to 70 km/h will accompany the snowfall so extensive blowing and drifting snow is expected.
The system will also give higher-than-normal water levels and rough surf on the Atlantic Coast.
Environment Canada issued the warnings for all counties, except for parts of Colchester and Cumberland Counties, which received blowing snow advisories.
Expect dangerous travel conditions and reduced visibility, Environment Canada said.
A weaker low following in behind the main system may bring additional flurries late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.
On Monday, keep up to date about what's open and closed in the province with CBC Nova Scotia's Storm Centre.
