A winter storm is expected to hit Nova Scotia midweek, marking the third Wednesday storm in a row.

CBC meterologist Peter Coade and his counterparts at Environment Canada says a low-pressure system is developing on the eastern seaboard, with Nova Scotia in its sights.

The Nor'easter will dump heavy, blowing snow on Wednesday. The forecasters predict the snow will touch down on the southwestern parts of the province that morning and spread eastward.

They're predicting about 15 centimetres of snow that could mix with ice pellets.

Sunshine should return on Thursday and Friday.
