Peter Coade's weather forecast for Feb. 6, 2015
Snow on top of ice is making for a slippery commute this morning
There's snow on the roads over top a layer of ice in some places which may make for another messy commute Friday morning.
- STORM CENTRE: The latest cancellations from across the province
- School, bus cancellations begin in Halifax region
The trough of low pressure that moved into the region on Wednesday will move east of Cape Breton this morning taking its snow with it.
In its wake, a ridge of high pressure will build across the Maritimes to provide generally fair but colder than normal temperatures through the weekend and into the beginning of next week.
There are indications of more snow by Tuesday or Wednesday.
For the weekend though, there should only be wind over open water induced flurries, in other words only where a northwest wind blows onshore should there be any flurries.
