Freezing rain makes for slippery road conditions throughout Nova Scotia
Freezing drizzle affecting much of the province after heavy snowfall
Freezing drizzle has replaced the heavy snow that blanketed most of Nova Scotia Tuesday morning, and will persist into the evening.
But the province isn't yet finished with the white stuff.
According to Environment Canada, freezing drizzle will change back into snow sometime later this evening, before tapering off overnight.
Surfaces, such as roads, walkways, driveways and parking lots are becoming slippery, and drivers needs to be aware of the changing conditions, the national forecaster said.
Tuesday's weather led to a snow day for most kids in the province Tuesday, and many events were also cancelled.
Both the arrivals and departures boards at Halifax Stanfield International Airport were a sea of red and yellow with many cancellations and delays.
Marine Atlantic cancelled its morning and nighttime crossings for Tuesday.
General snowfall amounts overnight and Tuesday were estimated in the 10- to 25-centimetre range for much of Nova Scotia.
