Winter storm to hit Nova Scotia overnight Friday and into Saturday
Environment Canada says a weather system developing off Eastern Seaboard will hit the province
Winter isn't giving up without a fight, as a snowstorm is forecast to hit Nova Scotia overnight Friday and into Saturday.
The province is looking at up to 15 centimetres of snowfall on Saturday, before changing to rain in some areas.
A low-pressure system developing off the Eastern Seaboard on Friday will track south of the Maritimes on Saturday, Environment Canada said in a special weather statement issued Wednesday.
"This system has the potential to give significant snowfall as well as strong easterly winds Friday night and Saturday. A changeover from snow to rain is possible over eastern regions of the province," the statement reads.
Heavy rainfall warning issued for today
Environment Canada also issued a heavy rainfall warning of up to 35 millimetres for Wednesday in Nova Scotia.
That rain could briefly change to freezing rain and snow overnight.
The system will also bring fog patches that are expected to dissipate after midnight.
