Many schools are cancelled in Nova Scotia after an overnight storm — yes another —  blanketed the province in heavy snow.

The roads are slippery making the morning commute slow for drivers. Buses are not running in the Halifax Regional School Board.

So far classes in these areas are cancelled :

  • Tri-County School Board closing in Yarmouth and Digby
  • Strait Regional School Board
  • Annapolis Valley Regional School Board
  • South Shore Regional School Board is closing schools in Lunenburg county
  • Classes are cancelled for CSAP schools in Clare and Argyle, Greenwood, Truro, Cookville and Metro 

Some of the rural schools are cancelled in Halifax. They include: Duncan MacMillan, Eastern Shore District, Musquodoboit rural and the Sir John A. MacDonald families of schools

Brookside Jr. High, Prospect Road Elementary and Atlantic Memorial - Terence Bay Elementary schools are also closed in the Halifax Regional School Board. 

Nova Scotia Power crews were out overnight trying to fix an outage in Dartmouth. The wet, heavy snow led to several problems on Tuesday night.

The utility estimates it will have about 1,100 customers in Musquodoboit Harbour reconnected by 7 a.m.

CBC meteorologist Peter Coade is predicting more rain and flurries Wednesday morning with some "short lived" sun. 

There's a risk of freezing rain around midnight. More snow, about 10 cm, could collect on the coast.
